Why Connected Researchers? I often feel like academic research is stuck in the 1990s, when emails and word processors were the only tools we had to communicate. This is 2016, where are the Facebooks, the Kickstarters, the Google Docs for researchers?
Web-based tools for researcher do exist! You just might not know about them. Research-orientated social networking sites, tools to support scientific research, to manage labs and data, and to better communicate have been multiplying over the past years. These tools could change the way we do research. But the adoption rate is still slow, partly due to the lack of awareness.
This blog keeps readers updated on new services, provide short reviews and keeps an extensive list of web-based tools for researchers.
