The Promise of Integrated Drug Pipelines From InfoDesk: Will Multisearch Work?
by Tara Breton
The benefit to being cohorts with a popular editor: insight into potential new products. In this case, a new tool under development by InfoDesk promises to integrate pipeline data from multiple drug information sources into a single set of results. Think of it: searching three or four databases and only dealing with a single output.

Free Collaborative Learning Tools for Science—Spotlight on Scitable
by Paula J. Hane
As Scott Merrill wrote on CrunchGear, "Social networks are a dime a dozen." He pointed out that many fail and many are just for specific niche audiences (though I don't think niches are a bad thing). So, he was as skeptical as I was about Scitable, a social network for science research and education from Nature Publishing Group, publishers of Nature and Scientific American. I was especially leery given the recent turmoil over licensing discussions between NPG and the University of California. (They recently issued a joint statement agreeing to work together to address the "mutual short- and long-term challenges.") Scitable is an educational website offered by Nature Education (a division of NPG) for biology and genetics educators and undergraduate students, and it provides a free library of high-quality, vetted content and tools. The company just announced the launch of the mobile version of Scitable.
