The Science Commons

The Science Commons is a treasure trove to me. Its partners include
  • BioMedCentral
  • Hindawi
  • iBridge
  • MIT Open Courseware ("OCW")
  • Public Library of Science
  • PLoS ONE
  • Rice Connexions


BioMed Central is a science, technology and medicine publisher for open access articles. More than 200 journals are citation tracked and available by Creative Commons Attribution License.


CAMBIA aims to develop and share life science technology. The institute is in the Black Mountain research campus of CSIRO, Australia. Its facilities include a laboratory, plant growth room, lecture theatre and library. A life sciences patent database is available. The site content is available via Creative Commons Attribution-Noncommercial-Share Alike License.


The Hindawi Publishing Corporation carries over 150 science, technology and medicine journals and several books. Readers can view, download and print peer-reviewed articles without subscription. The authors keep copyright to their work. For example, I found International Journal of Chemical Enigneering useful.


The iBridge Network "link ideas and innovations". The community shares early stage innovation. More than 80 organisations update research ideas to find collaborators and get feedback. Users can carry out searches by subjects and institution. Topics can be tracked by subscribing to news feed.

MIT Open Courseware ("OCW")

MIT open course ware gives free online course material. I hope I get some more knowledge before finding a job!
