    Hi Martin,

    I have set a nice lab notebook on WordPress using custom taxonomies I set on posts. It works really well.

    As I work on chemoinformatics, my projects will get a big part of developpement project management. Do you use such an application, and if yes, wich one please ?

    I saw Gantt Project (desktop application), dotproject and taskfreak for now.

    Thanks in advance for your help and best regards.

    You are right, but for journalists, authors’ e-mails on pubmed are the only chance to contact them…

    Amelia, I think a contact form would also work.

    Hi Martin,
    I dont see any news sources, google+ etc in PLOS ALM similar to the one provided by Altmetric.com.
    Do you plan to add them in future?
    Do you have a comparison chart comparing PLOS ALM with other providers such as Altmetric and Impact Story.
    Also would you be available for 15 minutes discussion on Wednesday Afternoon 1-5 PM EST.
    Thanks a lot,
