The Evolving Science Blogosphere, and a Reminder

Administration 35 Comments
By Jason Goldman

The universe is expanding, and so is the science blogosphere.

Following the announcement last week of, there are two new science blogging networks that have launched in recent days.

On Tuesday, The Guardian, a legacy media institution, launched a small but impressive science blogging network, that will reside alongside the main science blog. Check out Alok Jha’s introductory post, and then check out their four new bloggers. They are: are Martin Robbins, Jon Butterworth, Evan Harris and GrrlScientist.

In addition, on The Guardian’s main science blog, there will be a science blogging festival throughout September. The festival started Wednesday, with a post from Mo Costandi of the Neurophilosophy blog, on psychedelic drugs. Follow them on twitter: @guardiansciblog.

Also on Wednesday, PLoS launched a new blog network as well! In addition to the in-house blogs that they have (such as the everyONE blog), they have a series of other blogs – most of which should look familiar. They have a post up describing the philosophy and organization of their network, and their community manager Brian Mossop has a post up detailing the origins of the network with some good background on PLoS, their intentions to create a “niche network,” and links to all the new blogs. Follow them on twitter: @plosblogs.
Here are the blogs in no particular order:
Speakeasy Science: Deborah Blum

The Language of Bad Physics: Sarah Kavassalis

Body Politic: Melinda Wenner Moyer

Wonderland: Emily Anthes

Take As Directed: David Kroll

Neuroanthropology: Daniel Lende and Greg Downey

Obesity Panacea: Peter Janiszewski and Travis Saunders

Gobbledygook: Martin Fenner

GenomeBoy: Misha Angrist

NeuroTribes: Steve Silberman

The Gleaming Retort: John Rennie

Finally, an important reminder for those who have moved their blogs: make sure you re-register your new blog with Research Blogging! Instructions can be found here.

    Almost all of whatever you state happens to be astonishingly accurate and it makes me wonder the reason why I had not looked at this with this light before. This piece really did switch the light on for me personally as far as this specific subject goes. But at this time there is one particular factor I am not really too comfy with and whilst I try to reconcile that with the main idea of the issue, allow me see what the rest of the subscribers have to point out.Nicely done.

    One important issue is that when you find yourself searching for a education loan you may find that you’ll want a co-signer. There are many cases where this is correct because you could find that you do not use a past credit rating so the loan company will require that you’ve someone cosign the loan for you. Interesting post.
