Redesigns Website to Integrate User Content

Share Article

The Life, Earth & Health Sciences Magazine has reorganized its structure to facilitate interaction with users.'s new interface enables users to upload their science content for a new, private and spam-free web experience.

User Contributed Science Content = has introduced a new structure and new approach to publishing science content. Due to many requests from its users, researchers can now upload their science content without sacrificing their privacy. Many nor most "science" social networks require registration of users before they can interact with these sites. In the "classic" case of, such registration results in floods of unwanted email and general disregard of privacy concerns.'s approach is different: since users cannot register at the site, all interaction is anonymous. does not store any kind of information about its visitors, hence, contributions to the site by uploading science articles remains completely anonymous as well.

The latest update to the site has incorporated another major change to the site: While it was earlier only displaying 15 "other" references, now suggests 15 closely related articles for a selected abstract.

While contains a total of over 17,200 references on protein kinase enzymes which play important roles in several signal transduction cascades, section 34 hosts about 4,020 entries on protein kinase C (PKC) which is involved in controlling the function of other proteins. Within this content, chapter 33010 focuses on inhibition of protein kinase C which generally controls the function of other proteins through the phosphorylation of hydroxyl groups of serine and threonine amino acid residues on these proteins.

While many of these bibliographic references contain an abstract, their full content is currently not available. If scientists are interested in disseminating their research to a wider range of readers, they can now upload their content which will then be made available online after positive manual review.

Established in 1998, is a publisher of references in biology, in the applied life sciences agriculture, horticulture and forestry, in the earth sciences, in the environmental sciences, and in the health sciences. The site currently contains a total of 36.9 million bibliographic references and 20.8 million abstracts from as early as 1703.

The site also features expert literature searches on user-requested biological, geographical and health subjects, a mobile version for smartphones and frequently updated accounts at Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn and Google+.
