What if you could use an Open Science platform enabling you to seamlessly write with colleagues and instantly publish both your Articles and Definitions without leaving it? And what if the wider community of peers could then give the most transparent and diverse feedback by openly review both Articles and Definitions?
What if we took discoverability as seriously as accessibility? What if, instead of Google-scholar like long and meaningless lists of search results, you can get a visual answer to your query over scientific publications? What if you can immediately identify important concepts related to a topic and separate relevant from irrelevant content with respect to your information need?
Come with us and discover two new and innovative tools, Qeios and Open Knowledge Maps, addressing the starting and the ending point of a new, open scholarly communication: writing and discovery. They do all the above and more.
We shall have two different hands-on sessions
1) try a new way of integrating scholarly Definitions as the building blocks of your new piece of research and have it checked by the wider community of peers.
2) go for the Scientific Scavenger Hunt and improve your discovery skills. Together with other participants, you will try and complete tasks on knowledge maps within a time limit. You follow hints on knowledge maps that lead you to the correct answer.
