The article reports on the partnership of Sigma Xi and online resource ResearchGATE for the development of a major new online networking opportunity, the Sigma Ci Sub-community at www.sigmxi.org. The online tool can reach other sub-communities and groups based on various affinities, such as universities, private and governmental research institutions. Users will be able to search abstracts and experts or colleagues from all over the world. Paul C. Kettler of Sigma Xi thinks it will serve as a venue for scientists and engineers where they can make collaborations, exchange research hypotheses and results, pose and answer questions, maintain dialogues, and remain committed to the scientific enterprise.
