Research Blogging Awards 2010

We’re pleased to announce the finalists for the 2010 Research Blogging Awards.

Click here to see all the finalists

Our readers made over 400 nominations, which the judges painstakingly assessed to select 5 to 10 finalists in each of 19 categories (no award was given for “Best Blog — Computer Science, Engineering, or Mathematics”). Then a short list of the best overall blogs was created based on those ratings and individual nominations from the judges. The judges then discussed that list to decide on finalists for Research Blog of the Year, with its $1000 prize. Here is that list (in random order):

Research Blog of the Year Finalists

  1. Supernova Condensate (RB page)
  2. The Primate Diaries (RB page)
  3. Exploding Galaxies and other Catastrophysics (RB page)
  4. Neurophilosophy (RB page)
  5. Neuroskeptic (RB page)
  6. Not Exactly Rocket Science (RB page)
  7. Skulls in the Stars (RB page)
  8. Science-Based Medicine (RB page)
  9. Christina’s LIS Rant (RB page)
  10. Conservation Maven (RB page)

Originally the plan was to immedicaly open this field of finalists up to voting among registered users. However, after seeing the incredible breadth and depth of the blogs selected, we decided that it would be better to make the list available for one week, so voters would have a chance to take a closer look at each of the finalists before making their decisions. The list of finalists includes both links to the blog’s home page and its page on, so you can easily find their posts about peer-reviewed research.

So, one week from today, registered users will receive an email invitation from us to vote for the winners. If you’re registered with us, you may want to check your account to make sure your email address is up-to-date. If you’re not registered (and you blog about peer-reviewed research), you still have time to register so you can vote. Visit this page for more information.

We believe the list of finalists represents some of the best blogging being done on the internet today. The finalists should be honored to have been selected, and we’ve created a badge they can display on their blogs in recognition of this honor. Visit the Awards page for information on how to display the badge.

Voting for the winners will be open for one week from March 4 through March 11. The awards will be announced on March 23, 2010.

    strongzz I do agree with all of the ideas you have presented in your post. They are really convincing and will definitely work. Still, the posts are very short for beginners. Could you please extend them a bit from next time? Thanks for the post.
