Our October 2014 issue will be a celebration of our 10 year anniversary and we want you to help us celebrate by contributing to the creation of the anniversary issue cover.
We are looking for striking original images of the number 10 created by techniques or tools used for basic laboratory research in the biological sciences. This could be fluorescent cells patterned in the shape of a 10, a 10 written using two photon lithography, a DNA Origami-based 10, or 10 written using any number of other methods. The more imaginative the better!
The best image, or images, will be used to create the 10 year anniversary cover for our October issue. We will also post the best submissions, or all of them if there aren’t too many, here on methagora with a short description of how the image was created and by whom. If you use a method you published with us we’ll also highlight that article.
Please no drawn, computer generated, or heavily edited images. Images that work well on a black background may be preferable if the final cover ends up being a composite of several submissions, but we encourage submissions regardless of the background color.
We must receive your submission by August 25, 2014 for us to consider it for the cover. Late submissions will, however, still be considered for posting here on methagora with a description and acknowledgment. Multiple submissions from a single individual are welcome and we’ll highlight as many as possible here on methagora.
Email each image candidate to email@example.com with your contact information and a short paragraph describing what it is and what research method or tool was used to generate it.
Please spread the word to your colleagues! We want the variety of submissions to be representative of the wide array of techniques that have appeared in our pages over these last ten years.
