Social Archive and the Role of New Media in Scientific Dissemination: a Viewpoint

Authors: V. Christianto, Florentin Smarandache

Science is of course very far from the art, nonetheless there are some aspects of science which can be compared to art. For instance, there is elitic art who prefers that art is for art only. On the other side, there is pop art, which relates smoothly to industrialisation. And there is also avant garde art, which asserts that all things can be thought of as art (like mirror, glasses, broken windows etc). Similarly, in science some researchers believe that it is the best way to keep the 'ordinary people' outside of the traditional scientific communication (for example, arxiv.org declares that it is an exclusive scientific channel for scientists only), while on the other side people sometimes also wants to know what happens behind the wall of scientific labs, and so on.
