Scirus topic pages - Scientist sharing their knowledge
Posted Oct 23 2008 1:34pm
Its more a science 2.0 platform than medical 2.0 platform but it has the potential to aggregate a strong professional content. It is in the Beta phase and its still lack enough content but this is the "magic problem" of many others medical/health 2.0 platforms who are strongly depends on the users traffic and involvement. Scirus topic pages: Its contain two majors section : 1. Niche search engine ( There is already strong competition in this field) 2.Platform for collaboration and sharing for scientis. Its based on the concept of open access combined with a Wikis like platform.
Disadvantages : Without focusing ( search engine , community/sharing platform) Dont add something unique . Its looks like you see it or hear about it before. Advantage: Not so crowded yet (for scientists)
