Abstract

A new, free-access part of Science's main website, devoted to career advice for junior scientists.

Content

A new, free-access part of Science's main website, devoted to career advice for junior scientists. This site includes advice on funding issues, grant writing, grant review criteria, reprints of articles related to career advice from various sources, and links to many interesting career- and grant-related sites.

Navigation

Navigation around the site is easy, although pages that feature articles have no link back to the career development home page. Instead, there is only a link to Science's main page (which requires a subscription). Visitors without Science subscriptions might find navigation around the site frustrating, as many options, such as the search engine, are not available to them.

Reporter's comments

Timeliness

The site has been running for a few months only and at the moment is updated every three weeks with new articles.

Best feature

Grant doctor: an advice column that answers specific questions on national and international grant and funding issues.
