Mars Forum

NASA is planning its Mars Exploration Program in order to achieve high-priority science goals and address the challenges of sending humans to Mars, all within an environment of very constrained budgets. We're inviting the Mars exploration community and all interested people, regardless of educational or professional background, to engage in a conversation about the future of Mars exploration. Here's how:
ASK: Great conversations start with great questions. Throughout June, pose questions related to the planning effort. Comment on, discuss, and offer answers to questions posed by others. Vote for those you feel are most important to be addressed.

 ScienceWISE

The categorisation of physics concepts is a highly ambiguous task. Majority of physical concepts can be attributed to several different categories. In our ScienceWISE ontology each concept can belong to only one category. Its relation to all other categories can be specified via semantic relations (is a model of, is observed in, is part of, etc.)

The peer review process has a long-standing tradition in improving manuscript quality, in terms of correctness, reasoning, accuracy, balance ... However, it is not infallible, mainly because a single referee can miss out on some mistakes or can introduce some of his own.
On the other hand, as students and scientists we all read papers daily, evaluate and judge them alone, with colleagues, and in journal clubs. Done by many people, some of which domain experts, this process is able to improve a paper's quality beyond what a single referee could achieve. If the joint wisdom of the community could be bundled. This is what PaperRater.org is all about.
