Blogging on Peer-Reviewed Research

October 29, 2007

Some of you may have been following the progress of this initiative, but in case you haven’t, I urge you to go to the Bloggers for Peer-Reviewed Research Reporting ( website and get up to speed. It will be interesting to see how this all works out…I think it is a very cool idea.

Here’s the deal: Most of us science bloggers, from time to time, put in a little extra effort and write a post about a specific paper/study (or even dig back into older literature) and analyze it in more detail. Well, the folks over at have designed an icon that will identify your post as such. Here’s what Dave Munger has to say:

We’re pleased to announce that BPR3’s Blogging on Peer Reviewed Research icons are now ready to go! Anyone can use these icons to show when they’re making a serious post about peer-reviewed research, rather than just linking to a news article or press release.

Within a month, these blog posts will also be aggregated here, so everyone can go to one place to locate the most serious, thoughtful analysis and commentary on the web

The automated aggregation of these types of posts has interesting potential for those looking for ‘one-stop shopping’ of science bloggers analyses on peer-reviewed papers/studies. The above quote is from here…go there to learn more about how all this works.

UPDATE: It seems the site is down…hopefully it will be up soon.

UPDATE UPDATE: It’s back up.

    Thanks for the link! The site is back up now. Our ISP swears they’ve got a handle on the problem.

    Very cool. I might have to go find a paper to blog, just to celebrate.
