Exciting news! In the next 6 days, any scientific research paper you send me, I'll blog about! It could be research you've done that you want a wider audience to read about, or a research paper you need to read for work or school but that you're having a tough time translating. All I need from you in return is a $25.00 pledge to see my own science communication research put into action! It's a win-win!
I'm currently crowd-funding a research project together with a colleague at LSU to investigate who reads science blogs, and why they do. We are addressing a large gap in research on science blog readership, to ultimately gauge the impact, reach and accessibility of science blogs. To help us reach goal, I'm offering a new perk available to anyone who donates $25.00 or more to our project: Tweet or e-mail me a research paper you'd like to see blogged, and I'll blog about it on my blog here and at Scilogs.com!
It must be a peer-reviewed research paper. I will also give you permission to republish the blog post about the paper on your own blog, with attribution and a link back to the original.
So don't delay! Pledge here and let me get to work blogging about your chosen scientific paper! It'll be fun!
