Crowd funding

As many other things that are being decentralized with the advent of the internet, so is research. One of the very things being decentralized is the funding source for research projects.

Interesting projects

It is great that there are other interesting projects out there that are also concerned with making science available to more people! Here is a short list of projects I came across.

Open lab notebooks

Open notebooks are opening up science in the very first steps, making records of ideas, plans that didn’t work and protocols that failed available publicly. This allows others to avoid trailing the same dead end roads, saving time, money and human power.
