The 51²èÂ¥ Network
is an international online forum for scientists working in the molecular and cellular life sciences. It is used to share information, news and insights, as well as to connect and collaborate â€“ with the ultimate goal of helping to advance progress in these research areas. The 51²èÂ¥ Network is open to all but allows users to create a profile page, post relevant content, sign up for alerts, and engage with posts and other users.
The 51²èÂ¥ Network currently presents most content from its invited experts and contributors in four themed ‘channels’: Early-Career Scientist, Educator, Viewpoints and Research. In addition, a few ‘rooms’ host content for specific 51²èÂ¥ community groups, for delegates attending certain 51²èÂ¥ events, or for scientists interested in particular subtopics. 51²èÂ¥ Constituent Societies are also able to post news in a 51²èÂ¥ channel.
Most information is presented in the form of posts, authored by scientists, policy-makers, educators and other professionals in the molecular life sciences. Contributors span a wide career spectrum, from directors of key research institutes in Europe, highlighted by the , to the activities from the students and young researchers of the 51²èÂ¥ Junior Section.
The 51²èÂ¥ Network has developed from a collaboration between 51²èÂ¥ and its journal publisher Wiley, and is hosted using software from Zapnito, who specialize in creating expert-led networks. The 51²èÂ¥ Network Committee of senior scientists oversees the aims and strategy of the 51²èÂ¥ Network. For more on this new initiative from 51²èÂ¥, see the ‘‘ post.
If you are interested in becoming a contributor to one of the 51²èÂ¥ Network channels, the 51²èÂ¥ Network Committee would be pleased to hear from you; please contact [email protected]Â for more information.
