Social network provides a platform to share research

Journalists interested in communicating about research may find great use in a social network that compiles blogs and provides a forum for discussions and requests for information.

The Research and Media Network contains a social bookmark facility that updates automatically as new Web sites are added, forming a pool of information that can assist researchers with their work.

According to the Web site's creator, Mike Shanahan of the International Institute for Environment and Development, the network now has 1,300 members in 110 nations.
