Internet-based research program for scientific staff from available immediately free of charge Wurzburg – the platform developed at the University of Wurzburg scholarz.NET (scientist network) opens to all interested parties. Now academics can use free intelligent software at via the Internet. The clever software for academics scholarz.NET provides the complete Web 2.0 Toolbox”for the everyday work of the scientist: an innovative knowledge management, integrated management of literature, social knowledge function of ala Wikipedia and the first German-speaking scientist community. All functions are on the online platform available anywhere available. That the needs of the young generation of scientists meets, who want to exploit the potential of Web 2.0 for their scientific work”so Daniel Koch, project leader of the research project scientific work in the Web 2.0″ at the University of Wurzburg and even PhD. The function ability of scholarz.NET was successfully put to the test since the project started earlier this year in several closed test phases of international scientists.

To accompany the development team has further expanded the software the wishes of users adapted. After the encouraging course of the project, the team led by project manager Daniel Koch now opens the platform for scientists: now anyone can use completely free scholarz.NET.
