Introducing neuroscientists to on-line annotation
Hypothesis is teaming up with the Neuroscience Information Framework to introduce the neuroscience community to the potential of web-based, open annotation.
Society for Neuroscience Attendees: Share your knowledge through adding annotations to any web page or PDF using Hypothesis, and you will be entered into a drawing for an Apple Watch.
You must be attending the Society for Neuroscience Meeting in Chicago, Oct 17-21st to enter.
- Register for a Hypothesis account
- Register for YAnnotateSFN
- Annotate one or more webpages with at least 3 public, substantive annotations (i.e., ?, test, lipsum factum, don’t count). You might consider:
- a scientific article (preferably open access): e.g., pick one of your articles and give us some updates, make a difficult article easier to understand for students or non-experts, or just pick something that is interesting and discuss it with your colleagues
- a news story about neuroscience: tell us what you think? Is it accurate?
- a Wikipedia article on neuroscience: We are testing the use of Hypothesis to provide some peer review or suggestions for improvement for Wikipedia articles.
- Participating in the Resource Identification Initiative by helping us annotate reagents and tools in the literature.
- Stop by the NIF booth at SFN: #2115 (Right by the NIH booth)
The drawing will be held on Oct 28th.
