Leading academic publisher Springer Nature now has 30 Zapnito sites, from research communities to private editorial board hubs. These sites have attracted more than 1 million page views already this year, delivering new value to the scientific community and new benefits to Springer Nature. Learn more with our new case study!
The latest Springer Nature community is Behavioural & Social Sciences at Nature Research. This forum for sharing and discussing ideas and opinions across the behavioural and social sciences landscape brings together researchers from across related but often diffused disciplines and is a great example of how community can foster new, valuable connections.
Psychologies’ Life Labs community has long been a great source on expertise on all aspects of wellbeing. Now, members can find an expert to help them no matter what their concern – be it their career, their relationship, their family – with Life Labs’ new life coaches directory. A great use of our directories tool.
Zapnito is the platform for creating expert networks, which promote thought leadership and foster collaboration, connecting brands and their communities to build engagement and trust.
Here are the developments we’ve released this month:
‘Americans expect to get their news from social media, but they don’t expect it to be accurate’. Depressing for society but promising for publishers, this story based on new research from Pew Research Center again indicates – whether you are a consumer or a publisher – that the time is right for a move away from social.
“Around two-thirds of U.S. adults say they get news from social media… But 57 percent say they expect the news on social media to be ‘largely inaccurate.’”
Speaking of trustworthy content, Knowhere is a fascinating new news service that provides left-leaning, right-leaning and impartial reporting on the biggest stories, using AI and old-fashioned human editors. Check out this example, a report on the proposed Justice Department meeting into social media companies’ stifling of free speech.
Also on the subject of AI, somehow the whole chihuahua / muffin thing passed us by, until we read this Behind the Paper piece on Springer Nature’s Device & Materials Engineering Community. This post links to this Medium article on which computer vision API is best at differentiating chihuahuas from muffins. Read them both, or just laugh at the chihuahua / muffin pictures. Your call.
