Science and Social Networking
Social networking is all the rage at the moment. The idea of this project would be to explore how social networking could benefit the scientific / medical community. One option would be to explore how the SIOC social networking ontology could be used alongside the SWAN hypothesis management system and possibly the SALT ontology for discourse representation. There are other groups that we could explore working with in this area, for example, Harvard has recently won a CTSA grant for improving networking, and Biomed Experts is a social networking site that uses papers to create the links.
