How to share collections of publications with colleagues, students or the public:

Your Epistemio collections of publications can be shared either publicly or privately (e.g., with your lab, your collaborators on a specific project, or with your students).

Here are some ideas of what you can do with your Epistemio collections:
- Share the link in an email, on Twitter, in an instant messenger or elsewhere on the internet;
- Create a knowledge base for your lab by commenting, rating and reviewing the publications in the shared collection;
- Start a collection for a journal club;
- Compile the references for that great paper that you are writing with your collaborators spread around the world;
- Compile and keep up to date the list of the most important publications on a particular topic, as a reference for all students and scientists interested on that topic;
- Start one for the reading material for your courses, in order to easily share it with the students.

How to do it:
- Log in or sign up to Epistemio;
- Select Manage publications from the menu;
- Right-click on a collection in the left panel, and select Share; or select a collection in the right panel, and then click on the Share button;
- You can afterwards choose with whom and how to share the collection.

Replacing the assessment of research outputs in the UK's Research Excellence Framework (and in similar exercises in other countries) by a process of collecting peer-provided ratings leads to better evaluative information at a lower cost:
