Science Hack Day San Francisco

We’re excited to be a sponsor for Science Hack Day SF. The event is the weekend of November 12-13 at The Institute For Applied Tinkering in San Francisco.  Check out all the cool ideas, APIs and datasets for the hack session.


Announcing the PLoS Article-Level Metrics API
