We’re shaking things up at Science on Google+: A Public Database.

We’re shaking things up at Science on Google+: A Public Database. We recently created the Science on Google+ Community (see link below), and 17 scientists have recently joined the team to help curate the database and community (see Categories and Curators Section in the original post to see the new curators). Feel free to share your science posts with the Science on Google+ Community. We would love to hear from you!

Community Mission Statement

Science on Google+ is a community moderated by scientists, for all people interested in science, both professionals and the general public. The primary goal of this community is to bring real scientists to the public, for science outreach. A secondary and long-term goal is to create an environment that fosters interdisciplinary collaborations; thus, enabling and promoting cloud collaboration between scientists.
