SciScoop Relaunched

UPDATE: I’ve now upgraded the SciScoop search system, so that results are pooled from the archives of SciScoop and sibling site Sciencebase. If you have any problems finding old features, missing pages, or your news aggregator is no longer pinging our newsfeed do get in touch via email and I’ll try and fix any issues.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Cambridge, UK. – the Science News Forum – has undergone a serious makeover, got itself a totally new look, switched to a new web host and was rebuilt to make the most of advances in web content management systems.

“The new SciScoop site is now much slicker, cleaner, and modern looking,” says owner-webmaster David Bradley, “on top of that, the stunning archive of well over 3100 articles built up by more than 4300 members from first launch in November 2002 to April 2009 is now much better organized and accessible to keen researchers and casual browsers alike.”

SciScoop’s original voting system blazed a trail that was followed by social media and bookmarking sites the world over way back in the early 2000’s. Now, the site has switched to a new content management system with a new web host which is already helping to push the site onwards and upward into the next decade. Traffic has increased by an order of magnitude already this week based on recent stats from the version 1 site.

SciScoop Science will continue to provide a great forum for a wide range of science-related topics from aerospace and astronomy to medicine and mathematics, from environment to technology and from cognitive science to controversial conjectures. This latter category provides an excellent place to hear about some of the more bizarre theories on climate change, cosmology, and medicine that tend not to find a forum elsewhere. Of course with comments enabled for all visitors everyone is free to pitch in with their opinions and skepticism as they see fit.

The site also features a fledgling Sci-Art category where contributors can bring their artistic passions for science or the scientific passion for art to the fore.

If you would like to submit a news post, a review, artwork, or other information please get in touch with David Bradley on sciscoop@gmail-dot-com SciScoop is syndicated widely across the web, scraped by the big G news servers, and has close ties with many other popular science and technology sites.

If you were a member of the original SciScoop you should have received an email welcoming you to SciScoop 2.0 and inviting you to join the new discussions. All previous SciScoop members are in our Contributor database please get in touch if you’d like to post an item.ATE:
