In her report on Open science at webscale, I was interested to see Liz Lyon give the following list of tools used to share their work by researchers.
Currently, researchers are using open science tools such as:
- Connotea for reference management
- Mendeley (which applies LastFM principles associated with music selections to journal articles)
- Friendfeed (for threaded discussion and aggregation)
- Scivee and YouTube (for sharing experimental methodologies and protocols)
- SciLink and Nature Networks (for social networking)
- myExperiment (for sharing workflows)
- eyeLIMS (an open source Laboratory Information Management System)
- LabLit.com (about science/laboratory culture in the literature and media)
- ConceptWeb (from WikiProfessional and includes WikiPeople and WikiProteins)
