TO BE OR NOT BE. ON THE NET.

The age of modern science is being increasingly characterized by the ability of researchers to have access to data and, within a broader context, by the creation of a sense of shared knowledge. Shared resources, such as data banks and literature, today represent the basis of the concept of the research work as much as experimental accuracy and substantial theoretical foundation.

In the age of the internet, these meanings have been translated into increasing presence and availability of online information, web tools, web sites and social networks for researchers. Although the continuous improvement of “e-resources” and “in silico” tools for scientists, more than a few of them still feel dazed and diffident with respect to the major part of the virtual resources, due to some lack of understandable information about the benefits for research deriving from the online sources and from the presence in the virtual common spaces.

Anyway, it’s a matter of fact that the research world today is irreversibly “technology-driven”, and nowadays to be lacking in online presence is a factor leading to reduced visibility as well as to “silenced” impact on the scientific community. It can be expected that within a few years to be or not to be on the net will contribute explicitly “to be” or “not to be” a researcher.

That’s the reason why virtual scientific environments are intertwined with the real scientific network worldwide; that’s the reason why AllBioinformatics is conceived to be easily and deeply integrated with the daily life and the everyday work of researchers.
