Kevin Bonham Well, this isn't really about what we think, it's more about how we use.

So far, IMO, nothing is perfect.

If I plublish a writing or theory here or some other open access site, would this be considered Copy Right if indeed it is my own writings? Any thoughts would be helpful as I am not sure about the process. Thanks

Wellington Carvalho I don't know the answer, but this is not a official scientific magazine. Whatever applies to publishing content in any other website, applies here, I think. Except if otherwise established in the terms and conditions from the website (maybe it would be Mendeley's property if you publish here).

The pop-culture website RapGenius.com specializes in allowing users to annotate rap lyrics (with photos, videos, and text) typically to explain the "in" (aka in-the-know) cultural references made by the artists. I've just noticed that they now have an education section for annotating classical literature, poetry, primary historical documents and even scientific papers.

PLOS ONE has one sample paper to show some of the functionality: http://news.rapgenius.com/Varenka-lorenzi-ryan-l-earley-matthew-s-grober-differential-responses-of-brain-gonad-and-muscle-steroid-levels-to-changes-in-social-status-and-sex-in-a-sequential-and-bidirectional-hermaphroditic-fish-annotated

For those interested for tangential educational uses, take a look at: http://poetry.rapgenius.com/static/education

Related to reinventing the scientific paper, I've just set up a new group to collect nice examples of public referee reports, which some journals now include. http://www.mendeley.com/groups/3566561/open-peer-review/

How useful is LinkedIn for scientists?

I'm a recent graduate and relatively new to LinkedIn. I'm interested in learning about other LinkedIn users' experiences, particularly for those in science. Has LinkedIn been professionally valuable for you? Or just another version of Facebook?

I have posted a four question survey about the utility of LinkedIn on my website. I will compile and post the results on my site and LinkedIn as they come in. Thanks in advance to any willing to take it!

Anna Furches Thanks! The sample size is up to 51 now (website still reflects 49 at the moment). Looking forward to doing statistical analyses once I get a few more data points. I have some theories about it's current utility for scientists, so I am really interested to see whether the data will support them.

Given the group's title, I thought everyone might appreciate this relative neologism: "Proteus Phenomenon". http://www.wordspy.com/words/Proteusphenomenon.asp

A new open access journal for the life sciences: "eLife wants topublish the most highly influential research across all of life and biomedical science"..."eLife is a unique collaboration between scientists and science funders. Top scientists from all over the world drive eLife, from the senior editorial team to the over 150 researchers who serve on our Board of Reviewing Editors."
