You can now recommend and discuss articles on Sosido — try it out!
The “Recommend” and “Discuss” features can be very useful as ways to filter your article stream, to encourage dialogue within the Canadian CBMTG community, and to make sure that the best research rises to the top. We’ll be able to tell you which articles are of most interest to your colleagues, which topics are generating the most debate — and what’s most important to the CBMTG membership.
If you see an article that you think would be valuable to your colleagues, click the “Recommend” button. If you’d like to comment on an article, click the “Discuss” button. When you discuss or recommend an article, it will show up as activity on your profile. Colleagues who are “following” you (i.e. who have chosen to be updated on your activities using the “Follow” feature) will get updates on your recommendations and discussions directly to their stream page.
Last week, we added a new section called “New From Your Association Colleagues” to your Sosido Notes email. (Here’s our blog post on that.) Now you’ll see it live on the site too — have a look at your stream page. New member publications will show up in that section of the site as soon as they’re released, so you don’t even have to wait until Wednesday.
We’ve heard from a number of you that you’d like to hear about all the new publications from your CBMTG colleagues (not just those from people you’re following), so starting today you’ll see a new section at the top of your Sosido Notes email called “New From Your Association Colleagues“. This section lists newly-released publications or resources from CBMTG members.
These come from two sources: (1) articles recently indexed on PubMed that are pulled in from the CBMTG member feeds (details on how that works in this earlier blog post) or (2) other new articles or resources added by a CBMTG member or administrator.
From the email digest, click on the article name to view the abstract, or on the member name to view the member’s profile and other recent publications.
Let us know what you think!
