Today I was giving a presentation about Docear. Among others I wanted to show how positive many researchers respond to the concept of Docear. So I assembled a little picture with quotes about Docear (SciPlore MindMapping respectively) (see figure below).
After the presentation one of the attendees told me, he was surprised to not find any of the quotes on our testimonial page. Well, he was absolutely right. The most enthusiastic feedback we receive is by email. I have no clue why, but users seem to be a little bit shy when posting their opinion publicly.
For us, it’s really important to know what users think and their feedback – your feedback – may really help us, for instance, to convince our university to provide us with further resources (at least if your feedback is positive ;-). So, I would like to ask you: If you are a Docear user, write a short testimonial. Don’t send it by email, don’t post in here as a comment – leave it on our testimonial page, and please be a little bit enthusiastic :-). Surely, we don’t want you to write something you do not really think. But please also don’t hold back. And of course, we are also happy to hear constructive criticism. If you have ideas on improving Docear, if there is something you don’t like, let us know in our forum and we will happily discuss the issue with you.
