GoPubMed.org – Life-Science Search Engine
http://www.GoPubMed.org/

The latest version of the well-known life-science search engine www.GoPubMed.org sorts all relevant documents to the top level categories What, Who, Where and When. This way, for the first time in search history, it is possible to design searches on both content and metadata in a seamlessly integrated way. Dr. Michael R. Alvers, CEO of Transinsight, points out that the opportunity for a user to rank the search results according to personal needs is revolutionary. “We don’t rank, the user does!” says Alvers. With our semantic technology we put the user at the centre of the search. Ranking algorithms like Google’s PageRank are not relevant for us anymore since with our search technology the user is in the driver’s seat. Also the folksonomy feature to curate matches is new and makes the Web 2.0 now and here”. This has been added to Biological Informatics Subject Tracer™ Information Blog.

Video Journal of Conference Presentations

October 30, 2007

Video Journal of Conference Presentations
http://vjcp.blogspot.com/

The Video Journal of Conference Presentations (VJCP) is a new kind of scientific journal dedicated to archiving conference presentations and providing citation information for them. The journal is built on the idea that conference presentations can have great impact on scientific development over the long term. The basic VJCP article contains a title, a list of authors with their institutional affiliations, an abstract of no more than 500 words including references and conference information, and the conference presentation (a PowerPiont presentation synchronized with a mp3 file). Individual submissions should come from the author who attended the conference and gave the presentation. Group submissions from conference organizers are encouraged but the organizers must have commitments from the presenting authors. In either case, the article copyright belongs to the listed authors. A group submission may be organized into a thematic issue if the conference organizers are willing to act as guest editors and provide an editorial forward. All the presentations archived in VJCP are open access, free to read on the Internet.
