Dear colleague,

You are receiving this email because in the past you published results of your research in a scientific journal.

I am writing to inform you that, as part of the larger non-profit Life Science Network (LSN) initiative, which strives to organize and enable sharing and easy access to information related to life sciences, it is now possible to evaluate and comment already published research on a single web platform.

I'd like to invite you to join this initiative and, by sharing your opinion about scientific publications, contribute to improving the knowledge base we all use as foundation for our research and help us in creating an alternative research quality metric.

You can join this initiative at:www.lifescience.net

I am looking forward to seeing you among our members.

Best wishes,
Alen Piljic
