Information technology and computer software play a crucial role in relation to the scientific community. The Internet accelerates access to information about specialist and general science related information and the .SCIENCE registry will augment this further.
The .SCIENCE generic Top Level Domain (TLD) will allow all members of the scientific community at whatever level of involvement to interact under one namespace, no matter what their specialism or discipline, from schoolchildren discovering the excitement of science for the first time; or amateur scientists who are passionate about their pastimes; to professional scientists driven to advancing the understanding of their field through shared findings, research and discussions.
Members of the scientific communities must be able to readily access information and services pertaining to their own specific field of interests, but also all scientific fields in general, and the .SCIENCE generic Top Level Domain (TLD) registry facilitates this.
From the smallest experiment at home to the most elaborate endeavor, no scientist can operate without the wealth of knowledge built up by scientists over millennia. Given the sheer volume of such accumulated knowledge, the development of the internet has undoubtedly put science within the reach of a much broader community than ever before, as it has allowed access to information otherwise within the grasp of very few.
As science and all its different fields have evolved so has the way in which scientists work, in terms of the ways in which they show commitment to their fields and the methods they can use to access support and information to help develop or validate their scientific arguments. Due to its global and all-encompassing nature, the Internet is a powerful medium through which, information and services, can be accessed.
With a completely transparent and memorable domain name, the new .SCIENCE generic Top Level Domain (TLD) provides a dedicated, easily accessible location for global Internet users with an interest in science. .SCIENCE TLD is unrivalled as a source of information and services for online science communities.
