This is very cool: Research Blogging is a website that reviews and publishes blog posts about cutting-edge research, filtering out (in the site’s words) ‘more personal or frivolous posts.’

Here’s how they do it (this is available in full here).

  • Bloggers register with our site
  • They continue blogging as normal, but when they write a post that meets our guidelines, they visit our site
  • They use our automated citation generator to create a properly-formatted research citation for the journal article they are citing
  • They paste the code we provide into their post
  • Our automated aggregator finds their post and publishes it on our front page, where thousands of readers can easily find it
  • A reference to their post remains permanently in our database, so users searching for posts on a specified topic can easily find it later

The posts range from the totally accessible, to the extremely specialised – a cursory glance at today’s highlights includes the krill surprlus, ‘alien hand syndrome’, and synesthesia.

Also, there’s a good article about the site here.
