Scientific Social Networks
Social networks are scientific communities that use participatory technologies for the exchange of information. They promote relationships between professionals who find an ideal space for the development of their research activities. Here is a selection of the main ones:
A free online research and collaboration platform designed for the cooperation and exchange of scientific knowledge in the world. Aimed at students, teachers and researchers in any field.
Currently there are more than one million active members in it, who use the platform to communicate and leave comments, share and discuss scientific issues, actively participate in scientific congresses and events as well as find new employment opportunities and graduate programs. It is also a tool to help researchers to publish their research and to promote its dissemination throughout the world. Offers the option of creating scientific profiles, discussion groups, post search, and self-archiving.
Academic social network that connects researchers, grouping them by entities, departments and topics of interest. Provides access to full texts, specialized mailing lists and job offers. The researcher can create a web page about his research, post works, search for colleagues through Facebook, Linkedin and Gmail and follow the work of other researchers.
In addition to being a bibliographic reference manager, it is a social network. Mendeley allows you to have a public profile as a researcher, in which you can include contact information, interests, training or work experience, information that is included in the Mendeley web platform. In addition to public groups and profiles, it also allows you to follow other researchers to contact them.
