Abbiamo già parlato di colleborative tagging nel post su Engineering Village
L’esperimento è particolarmente interessante perchè unisce il social tagging all’open access (modello di BioMed Central)
Tagging (allowing users to assign their own short keywords to items on the web) has taken off through its use on sites such as del.ic.ious (for web bookmarks) and Flickr (for digital photographs). Tagging is also a great fit for scientific research articles, and its use in this way was pioneered by CiteULike, and later Connotea.
BioMed Central is actively working with the developers behind CiteULike to explore the synergies between open access and bibliographic tagging. As a small preview of collaborations to come, CiteULike has created a dynamic tag cloud for BioMed Central (displayed on the right), which shows the tags that are most actively being used to tag BioMed Central articles. The larger the tag, the more popular it is, and the more articles that have been tagged.
Ad esempio: per Microarray troviamo questi risultati
