A Ping is generally a concise question posed by a member of the SciPinion Community, a SciPinion client, non-profit or government agency to the SciPinion Community. Ping’s are meant to benefit the scientific community, scientists helping fellow scientists, creating a wealth of knowledge actively being shared between colleagues.
A SciPoll is designed to quickly assess the prevailing wisdom on a specialized niche topic and should take less than 1 minute of the expert’s time to answer and be something that can be answered without having to do any reading or research.
Below are featured results from recent Pings and SciPolls
