For Students
Benefit from features posted by your very own teachers, or academics from other universities and practicing scientists. Draw up your very own study plan. Convince your teachers to make online video, audio, or text contributions, and assist them in preparing materials. Create top-quality scientific features, as prospective science graduates, and acquire important references. Make contacts which are useful for you to get ahead in business, science, or academia.

For Professionals
Keep abreast of ongoing discussions and current developments in the field of your chosen profession. Take part in scientific discourse and enrich it with your own contributions from a practical perspective. Forge links between the areas of practice, science, and teaching, and discuss common ideas and concepts. Create a discussion forum with lecturers on a wide range of topics. Keep your knowledge of scientific research up to date with the ScienceStage platform, which is useful for everyday business practice.




Do I have to pay for it?


At the moment every feature is free-of-charge to use. We will provide additional, special networking features which will be chargeable. A basic membership will always be free.





Are the videos free?


Yes. As long as the video is not set as “private” or the group to which the video belongs is not private either.
Please note our terms of use and copyright tips.





Who will watch the material I upload?


Basically everybody is able and allowed to see your uploaded files, unless the group they belong to is set as “private”. (How to set as private? Read on...)





What happens to my personal data?


Please note our terms of use and copyright tips.





What about copyright laws?


Please note our terms of use and copyright tips.





Which type of content can I upload?



If you are a registered member, ScienceStage.com offers to upload your scientific or academic video, audio, and document files. Please note our terms of use and copyright tips.





Can I set media as private? How?


Of course. You can either set a single video, audio, or document file as private, or a whole group.

During the uploading process, a field will appear for the descriptions of your media. You will find a button where you can choose between “published” or “private.”

If you want to set as private a file which is already uploaded: “Manage my video/audio/document” at “My Desk” will link you to your media, with an “edit” button underneath. This will enable you to change the status.

Set the whole group as private: At “My Groups” click on the desired group. Beneath the group description you will find the respective button.







Can I download a video, audio, or document file?


Yes. Search for the file and you will see a “download” button beneath the title of the document or beneath the player of the video or audio file. Please note our terms of use and copyright tips.





What is a stage?



You may set up a channel (called a Stage) for yourself, your training program, institution, and/or working group. A stage is the proper platform to present you and your scientific findings through video, audio, and document files. Here you can also discuss all media contributions. A Stage is always public.





What is a Group?



After creating a Stage, you may also set up "Groups." Groups are common platforms of different members to discuss topics and share features among similarly interested academics. The group concept follows the idea of a closer community. Unlike Stages, Groups may be set as "private" in the menu "groups managed by me." This means that such private groups are closed and cannot be found and accessed by non-group members. You can share videos and documents in Groups. To do so you need to upload such features to your Stage first and add them to your Group afterwards. As Group administrator you may also exclude other members from your Group.





What are favorites?



Favorites are bookmarked media files. By adding a video, audio, or document file to your favorites, you can bookmark it in case you would like to watch it several times without having to search for it anew.





Can I create private groups? Can I hide media content?



Yes. At “Groups managed by me,” click on the desired group. Beneath the group description you will find the provided button to make it hidden or private.





How many groups can I create?


There is no limit.





How do I share or post my videos?


Use the “bookmark” button beneath the video player, after selecting the desired video. Then choose a service from the list where you want to post and share the video.





How can I be featured? And my videos?


Our editorial team is in charge of featuring. Mostly, files will be featured which arouse great interest, high ratings and top quality. We would like to invite you to suggest files which you think are worth featuring.





Can I send a video to someone who is not a sciencestage.com member?


Of course. After having selected the desired video, click on the “bookmark” button beneath the video player. Click on “Email” and type in the desired contact address.





How do I send messages to other sciencestage.com users?


You can either first go to the stage of the member you want to send a message to, and use the “send a message” button or just click in the header menu on “My message” to “compose message”.





How can I search for others scientists and members?


You can search for members, stages, profiles at “Stages” in the header menu.





Can I create folders for different documents?


Not yet, but we are still working on this feature.





How can I set a Group as private?


At “My Groups” click on the desired group. Beneath the group description you will find the respective button.





What is rating?


By rating a media file, users can give their opinion whether the content is worth seeing.





I don’t want all other users to watch my media files. How can I exclude members from certain files and material?


Simply create a new group, set it as “private”, add the media files to it and invite the members that you want to gain access to your content.





Which video, audio or document formats can I upload?


We support
In video: mpg|mpeg|avi|avi|divx|mp4|flv|wmv|rm|mov|moov|asf|swf|vob
In audio: mp3
In documents: .pdf





Why is the quality of my video so bad? Why do the videos I upload look grainy?


This could be down to several reasons:

This could be due to several reasons:

- the resolution of your original video file is very low
- the video file wasn’t very compact





Why are the videos juddering?


This could be due to several reasons:

- your internet connection may be too slow
- your computer doesn’t meet the technical requirements
- your hard disk is may be overcrowded






I can't find the video I'm searching for. Why?


This could be due to several reasons:

- the description and tag list of the video don’t include the keyword you are looking for
- the video was deleted because of inappropriate content (please read our terms of use and copyright tips)
- the video you uploaded is still being queued before being published. Please try again in a few minutes.






Can I transfer videos from other portals?


Yes. At “upload video” you’ll find a button beneath the header menu where you can start transferring your videos.





How can I post a video or an audio file to my blog or webpage?


Choose the desired media file. Next to the media player you’ll find the “embed” code which you just copy into the .html or CSS box on your blog or your webpage.





What is an RSS-Feed?


Using RSS (Real Simple Syndication) you can have videos delivered automatically.
E.g. if you would like to get the most recent videos when they are uploaded. After clicking on the RSS button you are forwarded to the RSS page; there you copy the URL of the page and enter it into your feedreader, or follow the menu below.






I forgot my log-in or password. What can I do?


Simply click on “Login” at the top. There you’ll find a field where your password is resent to.





Never received a registration email?


First please check whether the registration mail ended up in your spam folder.
If not, use the “resend password” button at the “sign-up/log-in” page.





How do I report bugs?


Please use the “feedback” button on the top of the front page to report a bug.





How do I report abuse?


Select the suspicious media file and use the “report” button.
