Social Networking and Open Access

The PLoS ONE service seems to be an interesting one. It’s a community-based approach to reviewing scientific reviews. Social networking is going to play a key role in the future of scientific research, study, exploration, search, collaboration, reporting of results, etc. I do hope that this attempt proves successful now that Nature’s social networking endeavor has been abandoned.

Happy New Year everyone!
