MyRSC: What is it? <ul><li>Mission Statement </li></ul><ul><li>To provide an “online tool” for networking and communicating within the chemical sciences community across the globe </li></ul><ul><li>Audience </li></ul><ul><li>Individuals at all stages of a chemical science career (both industry and academia) who want to make professional science connections </li></ul>
  3. 3. MyRSC: Why the Interest? <ul><li>Largest websites in the world: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Facebook, 400m users </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>LinkedIn, 60m users </li></ul></ul><ul><li>User generated, content cheap </li></ul><ul><li>Fastest growing marketing stream on the web </li></ul>

MyRSC: What are it’s goals? <ul><li>To provide an online tool for communication: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>With RSC functions - YOU </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>With the wider scientific community </li></ul></ul><ul><li>To bring the RSC membership in line with the new “e-first” strategy </li></ul><ul><li>To Utilise the RSC’s only exclusively web 2.0 platform for science communication </li></ul><ul><li> add value </li></ul>
  5. 5. MyRSC: Where are we now? <ul><li>Launched at IUPAC August 2009 </li></ul><ul><li>Currently more than 2,400 activated members </li></ul><ul><li>Debugging & new functionality being added </li></ul>UK users “Hit Map”

  13. 13. MyRSC: Case Study <ul><li>Customers? </li></ul><ul><li>Actors? </li></ul><ul><li>Owner(s)? </li></ul><ul><li>Transformation process? </li></ul><ul><li>Problems? </li></ul><ul><li>Solution? </li></ul>
  14. 14. MyRSC: Case Study <ul><li>How could MyRSC facilitate a specific area of chemical science? </li></ul><ul><li>How could it add value? </li></ul>Electro-analytical Chemistry IG/Journal
  15. 15. MyRSC: Case Study <ul><li>Customers </li></ul><ul><li>Anybody with an interest in electro-analytical chemistry </li></ul>Electro-analytical Chemistry IG/Journal
  16. 16. MyRSC: Case Study <ul><li>Actors </li></ul><ul><li>People who actively exchange knowledge and need to network with this community </li></ul>Electro-analytical Chemistry IG/Journal
  17. 17. MyRSC: Case Study <ul><li>Owners </li></ul><ul><li>The journal board/interest group committee </li></ul><ul><li>– anyone who actively contributes already on a regular basis </li></ul>Electro-analytical Chemistry IG/Journal
