Subject: Science Guide WWW Site
A New Internet Directory and Information Service run by Scientists and
Physicians for Scientists and Physicians. After visiting the Guide, If
you have any suggestion for making the Guide better please let us know.
(webmaster at scienceguide.com)
The Science Guide consists of a number of different sections designed to
help the scientist and physician find information on the internet and to
sponsor communication between those interested in science:
Every day the Science Guide compiles medical and research news from
national news sources around the net. Most of the news articles are
concerned with medicine, bioscience, and physics, but all other sciences
from agriculture to zoology are commonly included. News sources currently
listed include: CNN, EurekAlert, HMS Beagle, MSNBC Sci-Tech, Science
Magazine's ScienceNow, CBS Space News, USA Today, The Albuquerque
Journal, Scientific American Web Weekly, The Why Files, Discover
Magazine, Scientific American, Smithsonian Magazine, and the Technology
Review. The news pages also list links to news sources not compiled
within the News site. We are currently working on adding a number of
other sources to the site to make it even more useful.
To make getting science news even easier, we send out a DAILY NEWS
EMAILER listing the articles which have been compiled on our site.
Anyone can subscribe to the Emailer by sending an email to
news at scienceguide.com with the message "Subscribe"
DIRECTORY OF USENET NEWS GROUPS and DISCUSSION LISTS
The Directory of Usenet and Discussion Groups is compiled quarterly from
different sources around the net to provide the scientist and those
interested in science easy access to these invaluable sources of
discourse and information. We are currently working on finding the
proper subscription method for each of the discussion lists. This is
taking a bit longer that we thought so please pardon our dust. The
Usenet portions of this section are complete.
ON-LINE JOURNAL HYPERLINK SECTION
The Journals Section contains links to peer reviewed scientific journals
on the Internet. Each listing clearly indicates whether the journal
provides only the table of contents, TOC with abstracts, or the full text
of the journal
The Jobs and Positions Section contains hyperlinks to the best Scientific
Employment Databases and Classifieds on the net.
GRANTS and FUNDING SECTION
The funding section contains links to the best funding and grant
databases on the Internet, making it very easy for scientists to quickly
find funding opportunities. The featured site of the section is "The
Community of Science," a Johns Hopkins service designed to help
scientists find and continue funding.
