ResearchBlogging.org now supports Chinese-language posts

News 5 Comments

We’re pleased to announce that ResearchBlogging.org now includes posts about peer-reviewed research in Chinese. Chinese is the fifth language supported by the site, following 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, Chinese-language bloggers Andrew Sun, Xinwei Han, and Haoyang Xu have volunteered their valuable time and expertise and will serve as the first Chinese-language administrators of the site. These bloggers will lead the way in sharing their thoughts on peer-reviewed research, written in Chinese.

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 (Chinese, Portuguese, Spanish, German, English).

Here are the first Chinese-language blogs to register for the site.

We encourage new bloggers to register. If you blog about peer reviewed research in Chinese (or English, Spanish, Portuguese 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. For more information in Chinese visit ResearchBlogging.org Chinese News.

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.

The hundreds of 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.

    Studying this reminds me of my old space mate. That guy was a single in the smartest human beings I know, but he was a little odd for my tastes though. Anyways I appreciated reading this, thanks. Will give me some thing to go into when I see him.

    I think that is an interesting point, it produced me think a bit. Thanks for sparking my thinking cap. At times I get so much in a rut that I just feel like a record.

    You really make it seem so easy along with your presentation but I find this matter to be actually one thing that I feel I would never understand. It seems too complicated and very vast for me. I’m taking a look ahead for your subsequent post, I¡¯ll try to get the hold of it!
