Nature Network bloggers among the best!

The blog posts of four Nature Network bloggers have been chosen to be part of an anthology of the best science blog posts of 2007, called Open Laboratory 2007. The book will be available in bookstores and from Amazon later this month, according to Bora Zivkovic, who led the charge this year in putting together this year’s anthology (last year’s anthology, also Bora’s doing, was only available online).

Out of more than 450 nominated entries, 52 were chosen by a panel of more than 30 judges; the winning posts include these from Nature Network bloggers:

Deanne Taylor, a research scientist with the Harvard School of Public Health, describes what changes need to be made to boost faculty diversity in science.

Kristin Stephan, a Tufts graduate student, discusses how difficult, but necessary, it is for PhD students in grad school to learn about careers outside of academic science.

Our very own Henry Gee, an editor with Nature, writes lovingly about his 9-year-old daughter with Asperger’s Syndrome and how having Asperger’s might help her become a good scientist.

Jennifer Rohn, a postdoc at University College London, documents in this series of four posts her return to the lab and academic science after four years as a journal editor. Required reading for anyone contemplating a career change.
