Web-Based Technologies Change International Research Collaborations

Monday, 17 February 2014: 9:45 AM-11:15 AM
Columbus KL (Hyatt Regency Chicago)
This session explores recent and emerging web-based technologies that connect scientists internationally by building the basis for collaboration through knowledge exchange, access to funding, and crowd-sourced discovery. It will present a new, crowd-sourced platform for finding internationally available research funding opportunities; insight into Mendeley, a rapidly expanding service and application programming interface (API) that manages references and connects scientists globally; the technology base for the work of Scientist Without Boarders to mobilize researchers in response to global challenges; and an analysis of technical barriers to searching and downloading the more than 10 million full-text peer-reviewed publications in the world’s digital repositories.
