ABSTRACT

In this work interesting ideas about the diffusion of science through internet are presented. Starting with an introduction about the  Internet and its positive and negative aspects, we consider the impact on scientific results, the popularization of science, the utilization of  the Internet as a resource for scientific information and in relation to academic publishing. We conclude by  discussing an example of internet research focused on the unification process in science, considered from a pedagogical point of view, as a tool for both adults and children

 

Keywords: Internet, research, methodology, science, information, truth, popularization, education.
