Science and Curation: the New Practice of Web 2.0

Since 4/2012, Leaders in Pharmaceutical Business Intelligence, is developing an innovative methodology for the facilitation of Global access to Biomedical knowledge rather than the access to sheer search results on Scientific subject matters in the Life Sciences and Medicine. For the methodology to attain this complex goal it is to be dealing with popularization of ORIGINAL Scientific Research via Content Curation of Scientific Research Results by Experts, Authors, Writers using the critical  thinking process of expert interpretation of the original research results. We demonstrate in this article two approaches to the process of reaching that goal successfully.

This article has two parts:

Part I: The Curator as a Scientific Content Critique for the Architecture of Knowledge, its meaning and its societal implications.

Part II: Cases in Co-Curation and Scientific Content Critique

In Part I, one curator edifies the e-Reader via his/hers OWN creative mental processes of knowledge synthesis following the creative mental process of analytical critique. The outcome is a new FORM of writing Science and of writing about Science, as well as, a new FORM of framework been created for the organization of the interrelations exposed in the analytical phase of a dialectically generated original synthesis, the process of which is manifold: the structure of the knowledge presented, culling in the midst of inclusion/exclusion dialectics and finally the Curator’s own original synthetic statements of the new Art, a new conceptual perspective on Science.

In part Part II: Cases in Co-Curation and Scientific Content Critique, are presented. A similar process to the one in Part I, is been applied. However, the Co-Curation, brings on stage several players. The Actors in the Scientific Writers Theater,  all own scientific knowledge and master the process of creation of a new Synthesis for most writing engagements. Since the Co-curators are educated in different disciplines, they are skillfully providing interpretations for others’ and their own new conception of ideas. Thus, they are developing new views of the original scientific results presented in peer reviewed journals, just the leading ones in every field. The Co-Curators, their creation is a new layer of comprehension for the processes at hand.

Example #1:

Action Potential, a well define concept in Physiology. For us,  Action Potential was a conceptual creation for the process of Co-Curation. Dr. Lev-Ari, requesting Dr. Bernstein to elaborate creatively, on the function of actin in cytoskeleton mobility, he did,  THEN a new conceptual creation process emerged and had YIELDED the following article:

Identification of Biomarkers that are Related to the Actin Cytoskeleton

Curator: Larry H Bernstein, MD, FCAP


Example #2:

The e-Reader reads first

High Serum Calcium Linked to Developing Diabetes: IRAS Study

 Sep 24, 2013


The e-Reader reads second the curation of that Source Interview

Diabetes-risk Forecasts: Serum Calcium in Upper-Normal Range (>2.5 mmol/L) as a New Biomarker


The e-Reader will compare which of the two is more beneficial for the e-Reader.

We believe that the curation of the Source Interview has remarkable value added analysis that the Reader can benefit from.

The unique process as described for Part I and for Part II, above, will be demonstrated, below,  in concrete cases, as we applied the methodology of curation by one or by several Experts, Authors, Writers in the field of Cardiovascular Diseases.

The Process: We culled the scene for Cardiovascular Original Research in +24 Journals, we pre-select domains of research to cover: The Etiology of the Disease, the Risks of dysfunction at cellular, tissue, organelle, organ, anatomy, physiology, pathophysiology and diagnostics for all of the above. We interpret the Disease Management Options in a comprehensive fashion, exposing the e-Reader to an integrative approach for the treatment of Cardiovascular Disease.

Below,  the e-Reader finds selective cases exemplifying the methodology described, making

the one and only on the Internet and in e-Book Stores, to date.
