We’re pleased to announce that ResearchBlogging.org now includes posts about peer-reviewed research in Polish. Polish is the sixth language supported by the site, following Chinese, Portuguese, Spanish, German, and English.
The site was designed with the flexibility to offer blog posts in any language, but the key to supporting a new language lies not in the software, but the humans behind it. Since most of the people blogging about peer-reviewed research are busy scientists themselves, it can be a challenge to locate qualified experts willing to help evaluate participating blogs to ensure that our standards are maintained, no matter the language of the blog post.
Fortunately, Polish-language bloggers January Weiner, Doskonale Szare, and Ewa Krawczyk have volunteered their valuable time and expertise and will serve as the first Polish-language editors of the site. These bloggers will lead the way in sharing their thoughts on peer-reviewed research, written in Polish.
Visitors to ResearchBlogging.org can specify which language or languages they prefer to read, and the site remembers their preferences from visit to visit (to select multiple languages, use Control-Click or Command-Click). There are also RSS feeds available in each language, and Twitter users can follow posts in each language as well (Polish, Chinese, Portuguese, Spanish, German, English).
Here are the first Polish-language blogs to register for the site.

We encourage new bloggers to register. If you blog about peer reviewed research in Polish (or English, Spanish, Portuguese, Chinese or German), visit our registration page to sign up. If you know a blogger in one of those languages, let them know about our site and encourage them to join.
ResearchBlogging.org helps people locate and share academic blog posts about peer-reviewed research, instead of just news reports and press releases. Bloggers use the ResearchBlogging.org icon to identify their thoughtful posts about serious research, and those posts are collected in a database and displayed on a central site for easy reference.
Over 1,200 registered blogs publish dozens of posts about peer-reviewed research each day. That’s more content than the science section of any mainstream newspaper, and the posts collected are typically much longer and more detailed than a newspaper article. Even if you don’t have a blog, you can still use the site to learn about fascinating developments in cutting-edge research from around the world.
