RE: Some thoughts about STEM on Steem - bonus: a complete introduction to particle physics

in #steemstem4 years ago

Personally I believe that immortalizing technical information on the blockchain where there's no censorship involved would result in the creation of a free library available for all internet users,

In physics, we have the arxiv for this. I would keep steem as a very good medium for communicating about science, but I won't use it for publishing actual research paper. You need something made explicitly for scientists (check scipost for instance) that is more controlled. Otherwise, how to distinguish the good from the bad? Who is deciding what is good and what is bad? Blog posts are one thing, but actual research is another thing.

PS: Thanks! I will fix it immediately!
