Time is running out to submit your favorite blogs for the chance to be included in The Open Laboratory 2008, the annual anthology of the world’s best blogs about science. As this year’s Editor, I’d like to remind everyone that science blogs come in many shapes and forms, and the judges and I will be looking for a balance of posts that describe scientific advances in an engaging, creative way as well as those that reveal the more human and meta side of practicing scientific research.
The submissions have been being coming in all year, but with a deadline of 1 December fast approaching, it’s time to make your move. Any post after 20 December 2007 is eligible, and you can nominate your own posts as well as others’. More than one is fine – though have pity on the poor judges, who will have to plow through all of this stuff over the festive period! Don’t worry about duplicates, as we can handle this. We also encourage the submission of original poems and cartoons, and as always, we’d love to see new bloggers as well as more established ones represented.
Keep in mind that, as the posts will appear in print, a piece that has lots of links, copyrighted pictures, movies and the like may not translate well. Any images will be in greyscale and should be available as much higher resolution than what you probably put on the web (>200 dpi at the size it will be printed).
You can see all the entries so far at the bottom of Bora’s update.
As you were!
