Academia.edu now lists faculty members and students from York University

Academia.edu launched by alumni of Stanford, Oxford and Cambridge University does two things:

  • It shows academics around the world structured in a ‘tree’ format, displayed according to their departmental and institutional affiliations.
  • It enables academics to see news on the latest research in their area – the latest people, papers and talks.

The founders hope that Academia.edu will eventually list every academic in the  world — Faculty Members, Post-Docs, Graduate Students, and Independent Researchers.  Academics can add their departments, and themselves, to the tree by clicking on the boxes.

Academics are joining the tree rapidly. Some professors on the site include:

– Richard Dawkins – http://oxford.academia.edu/RichardDawkins
– Stephen Hawking – http://cambridge.academia.edu/StephenHawking
– Noam Chomsky – http://mit.academia.edu/NoamChomsky

York University is also listed in Academia.edu so go ahead and include yourself!
