"The traditional and established way of the print days of publishing, discussion and citation in other papers has been evolving in a digital direction. In parallel, but often unconnected, new technical means enable researchers to communicate and interact in a much faster and sometimes more efficient way using blogs, internet forums and social networks. The challenge on one hand is to combine the advantages of the traditional system (reliable trusted references, peer review, recognition by community) with the new digital means (dynamic, faster, time-independent, wider spread, less exclusive, much more open). On the other, it is important to leave the disadvantages of both (traditional: static, exclusive; new: volatile, outside peer review processes, not citable) behind to establish an innovative way of scientific communication. In our short paper and presentation, we would like to present the prototype of the PARTHENOS Hub, illustrate how it combines traditional and modern media of dissemination and discuss ideas regarding its future development."
