Social Networks Let Scholars Remix Their Articles - Chronicle.com

Pronetos is (yet another) social networking site, but this one is aimed at university researchers and instructors.. The phrase, "it's kinda' like Facebook, but for academic scholars" is an appropriate description.

So far, the list of subjects and disciplines is pretty good, and if your specific area of study isn't already listed there, you can sign-up to add it.

Thanks for the write-up Amber. There are several new features on Pronetos and we have a very aggressive schedule to introduce even more features, but here are the latest:

Document Versioning: Now, after getting feedback from your peers, you can upload a revised version of the original document, thus reducing the confusion of posting multiple versions of the same document.

Open Peer Review: Based on five factors, you can now have peers in your field review your submissions with more than “comments.”

Improved Profile Pages: Tell people more about yourself and your research! On your profile page, click “Edit your profile” to add “About Me,” “Current Research,” “Outside Interests,” and more.

Check back and be sure to tell your peers to sign up on Pronetos!
