Engineering. Medical. Pharmaceutical. These are just some of the fields that seem to dominate the world of science news. Whether it be a new development in the fight against cancer, or a ground-breaking technological advancement in the oil and gas industry, these are the types of stories that seem to crowd daily headlines, leaving little opportunity to cover much else from the world of science.
But what about the social sciences—those that study how people live and interact with each other and the environment around them? Examining people and civilizations both past and present, the fields of anthropology and archeology are responsible for so much, yet don't always get the recognition they deserve—until now. Just recently, Science Index updated their site format to include new's sections specifically for these two areas of study.
Established in 2000, Science Index is an online network that offers a forum for people to share the best resources, journals, news stories and more, that pertain to every sect of science—from chemistry to biology and everything in between. Seeking to deliver only the best, reputable sources for its users as quickly as possible, the site is updated in real time, and they even have a Twitter account to help share instant updates and facilitate the information sharing process.
Evidence of the site's continual growth, the addition of these two new sections under the "Society" sciences tab is revolutionary for the world of online anthropological and archaeological research. It helps streamline the process and gives everyone from industry experts to college-aged students a reliable medium for relevant information and news.
Covering everything from race and the workplace to cultural tourism, the Anthropology subsection discusses physical and cultural development, social customs, beliefs and much more. It offers users the opportunity to receive up to the minute updates through their RSS feed feature.
Similarly, the Archeology division delves into topics such as prehistoric people and their remains, artifacts and more. Members of this online scientific network can also receive up-to-the-minute updates and news blurbs.
So, if you're looking for the most recent anthropological newsbreak or need another source for your archaeology assignment, look no further than Science Index. You'll be pleasantly surprised.
