Science Node is a free online publication, developed in collaboration with organizations in the US and Europe. Our team writes for experts and non-experts alike, exploring the real-world impact of advanced computing and networks.
Why Science Node? The name emphasizes our connectedness. With every story, Science Node illustrates how science improves our everyday lives. And it serves as an international connection and redistribution point — a point of communication, intersection, and convergence.
Our mission is to inform the global research community (including everyday, business, and technical people) about research breakthroughs, the resources that make such breakthroughs possible, and new advances that will make possible the breakthroughs of tomorrow. Coverage spans several broad categories:
- Advanced computing: High-performance computing (supercomputing), cloud computing, grid computing, novel computing, cluster computing, etc.
- Research networks: Connections that foster global science and research, and the international collaborations that fuel innovation and discovery
- Big data: Analysis, capture, curation, storage, management, archiving, transfer, visualization, etc. -- extending to the Internet of Things
- Tech trends: New and emerging tech -- in other words, research and development aimed at discovering the next big thing (or using existing tools/methods in new ways)
- Community building: Women in tech, diversity and expansion efforts, citizen science, collaborations and partnerships, etc.
We're also committed to featuring a wide variety of disciplines, ranging from science and engineering to the arts and humanities.
