About this Book[edit]

At Science J.H.A College Chennai 2013, some of us remarked that many people who do citizen science have trouble disseminating their work to peers and the general populace. Sciencewood scientists often find that conventional science journals are inconvenient places to publish their work; journals can have undesirable licensing, they can be slow to publish, and they can be expensive.

We consider it imperative that scientific research, of all kinds, be easily accessible. As well, that there be some sort of portal for these people to communicate their ideas to one another. Scientific research and inquiry no longer must be limited to the privileged few, but can be made freely available and accessible to most people.

There are many other places where people may choose to disseminate their discoveries, but many people are not aware of these places. This is why we are writing this book about how to communicate to the world science play a vital role.While the book started at Science J.H.A Collage Chennai 2018, if is an ongoing process. Add to it, keep it updated, take it for yours.
