After researchers have conducted experiments and analyzed their results, they often publish these findings in journals. Additionally, scientists hold conferences where people give talks on their work. These forms of sharing information can be very helpful to other researchers because they inspire new ideas and provide easily accessible scientific information.

For example, there are two links to articles about kainic acid on the previous page. These researchers have designed experiments that use kainic acid to study diseases and also monitor toxic components in the ocean. They publish these results to help educate people and to further the scientific knowledge that is available to others!
