How do we dive into science?
Our scientific curation process is inspired by information literacy, which focuses on a wide range of skills necessary to address your information needs. Since we work in various science fields, we can also talk about scientific literacy.
Together we take the time to properly target your needs and thus determine the depth of your dive:
Locate: Within the ocean of sources we locate pearls of knowledge.
Organize: we collect knowledge from scientific databases and we will organize them in a database or a bibliography.
Evaluate: we scrutinize the sources and their content with our scientific expertise.
Understand: we can analyze and synthesis the pearls of knowledge in the format of your choice (sheet, book, video, computer graphics, etc.)
Communicate: Since scientific communication is also part of our skillset. As a team, we can help you to communicate your message effectively, thanks to our skills in pedagogy, scientific communication and knowledge transfer.
Make use in an ethical manner: the final outcome of this process will allow you to use each of these pearls of knowledge to reach your goals.
