  • ResearchGate

    Free Web iPhone Website

    ResearchGate was built by scientists, for scientists.

    It started when two researchers discovered first-hand that collaborating with a friend or colleague on the other side of the world was no easy task.

    Founded in 2008 by physicians Dr. Ijad Madisch and Dr. Sören Hofmayer, and computer scientist Horst Fickenscher, ResearchGate today has more than 6 million members. We strive to help them make progress happen faster.

    Our mission

    Our mission is to connect researchers and make it easy for them to share and access scientific output, knowledge, and expertise. On ResearchGate they find what they need to advance their research

  • The Anarchist Library

    Free Web Website

    An archive focusing on anarchism, anarchist texts, and texts of interest for anarchists. Within the scope of our use of the term “anarchism” we have been quite broad, but broad does not mean infinite, and basically shrinks down to a set of ideas against the State and the capital.

    The library also contains a “book builder” feature that allows you to build a specific collection of texts and combine them into one, like a collection related to introducing anarchist thought. The site also provides an advanced search engine. Currently there are the English, Spanish, Serbo-Croatian, Finnish, Macedonian, and Russian libraries.

    We ask that uploaders contribute a logical representation of the text, with headings, emphasis, quotation blocks, etc. marked up appropriately. The site provides some tools (inside the web interface) to make this process easy, but some attention and some care is still required. Please be sure to read the manual if you plan to join the project for the mid- to long-term.
