  7. 7. It is a mistake to consider a research paper important because it is published in a journal with a good citation record, as measured by its impact factor. […] It is much better to focus on the citations, views or downloads of an individual article. Nature 502, 271 (17 October 2013) doi:10.1038/502271a http://www.nature.com/news/the-maze-of-impact-metrics-1.13952

  16. 16. Letting any tool share data with Mendeley users
  17. 17. A paper published overnight by American researchers Heather Piwowar and Todd Vision in the open access journal PeerJ has finally reliably demonstrated what many data sharing advocates have been saying for a long time. Far from hurting the ability to publish, sharing data in a public repository can actually lead to a tangible benefit to your publication record through increased citations. http://theconversation.com/scientists-must-share-early-and-share-often-toboost-citations-18699

But a lottime we are very “All the of the state of knowledge of the human race is sitting in the conscious of the huge challenges scientists’ computers, and is – that human society has now currently not shared. We need to curing cancer,shared understanding get it unlocked so we can tackle the brain for Alzheimer‘s. those huge problems.“
