    Hello,

    I am looking for a scientific publishing tool, and also for a collaborative platform.
    At a first glance, wordpress could be a good basis for these two purposes.

    I was wondering whether this idea had already been prospected. Could anybody share some informations over this topic ?

    Cheers,

    JohnLeM

    Here is an excellent example of a very successful WP blog with *lots* of scientific content, and a fair amount of collaboration. There are many others, this is one of the most prolific examples (Terrence Tao happens to be one of the most well-known mathematicians).

    You might want to start with the LaTeX Plugin for WordPress, if you want to publish articles that have a lot of mathematical content.

    Pingback if you want a longer blogroll (or anything else) :)

    Cheers!

    Avanimisra,

    Thanks a lot, I did not knew this blog, it is a remarkable and useful of wordpress. It is very close to what I was imagining for my own purposes.

    I have a couple of questions :
    1) Indexation of information in tao's blog seems to rely mainly over categories. Categories are a nice indexation way, but could be nicely completed through an arborescent like indexation.

    For instance, I would like to have

    http://www.myblog.org with some classical posts and archives, but would also include

    http://www.myblog.org/math, that would also have its own post and archives, that would also includes
    http://www.myblog.org/math/pde
    http://www.myblog.org/math/stochastic

    etc...Is that easy to achieve using wordpress ?

    2) I did not knew that Latex was wordpress compatible. Thanks very much. Latex can be used also in comments ?

    thanks again for these informations
