Conclusion • Science News is important for the scientists and researchers to get the latest in the field of science and technology. • Science News is an important part of any science portal to keep abreast its users and Scigate is one such service provided by NCSI. • The main users of this portal are the scientists, research scholar and students of IISc working in the area of different disciplines of science. This project can be considered as another enhancement of the Scigate portal. • Through this service, we can inform our users with the latest developments in the field of science and can improve their productivity as they can focus more on latest developments and can change/enhance their research area.
Future Development There is always scope of improving any service. This is also true here. In future, we can have these developments. • Now there is only News headline and Source is given. We can also provide some detail about the news itself in 2-3 lines so that the user can immediately come to know about the news contents. • We can also provide the daily news e-mail alert service to our users.
