How can the Internet be used to most accurately compile current scientific and medical knowledge, as well as present-day speculations, from scientists in their fields of speciality?

How can the Internet be used to most accurately compile current scientific and medical knowledge, as well as present-day speculations, from scientists in their fields of speciality? Such Sci-Pendia (Scientific Compendia) will have various uses:

  • To provide up-to-date information regarding medical diagnoses and treatments

  • To guide planning of research efforts (at the levels of both investigators and institutions)

  • To provide an up-to-date basis for textbooks

  • To provide an historical account of the development of a particular scientific area

  • To provide a new means for finding correlations between (otherwise disparate) ideas/findings

The software needed for making Sci-Pendia easy to create is not yet available because such a system needs bi-directional pointers, and a multiple-list structure similar to zzstructure.
