Dr Richard Price, a Fellow of All Souls College Oxford, has just launched a website, http://www.academia.edu/, which in his words does two things:
” – It displays academics around the world in a ‘tree’ format, according to what university/department they are affiliated with.
– It enables researchers to keep track of the latest developments in their field – the latest people and papers. ”
He is hoping that the site will list every academic in the world — Faculty members, Post-Docs, and Graduate Students.
Current professors on the site include:
– Richard Dawkins – http://oxford.academia.edu/RichardDawkins
– Noam Chomsky – http://mit.academia.edu/NoamChomsky
– Stephen Hawking – http://cambridge.academia.edu/StephenHawking
