This is the third post in the Intro to Sciety series, where we explore the development of the application. Post 1, Post 2.

Once you reach the application's homepage, you will find that it is designed in an easy-to-use layout.

Considering that our goal is to help you find the evaluations that matter to you, we have included a search bar in a prominent position. Once you begin to click around, there is a search icon visible on every page. This will help you achieve the core goal we hope you have come to the application for: exploring the preprint landscape.

Evaluated articles can easily be found with the search bar, or if you prefer, by looking at the list of current groups and selecting a group to view its activities. Doing this allows you to see evaluations by that group and read more about them. You could follow the group and share or save their work to ensure you see their latest activities the next time you return to Sciety.

Logging in gives a customised interface for your personalised items including groups and articles you saved, as well as a feed for evaluations from groups you follow. This allows you to curate your choice of evaluated articles.

Who can use Sciety?

Anyone can use Sciety. We are open, free and available to all.

We bring together the latest opinions on preprint articles to help you stay in tune with findings in the biomedical and life sciences. Your feedback on how we can make it easier and accessible for you is always welcome. Click here to tell us what you think!

Do I need to log in to use Sciety?

No; much of Sciety can be explored by users without logging in. However, to take advantage of everything on offer, we encourage you to log in with your Twitter account so you can save articles, follow groups and much more.

Sciety represents a safe space for the open evaluation and curation of the very latest scientific developments. We look forward to welcoming you into our community!
