Our introduction of all the new-look nature.com blogs continues! We’ve already heard from the editors about the News blog, the Spoonful of Medicine, the Sceptical Chymist, Stepwise, Naturejobs, Trade Secrets , Indigenus and House of Wisdom. Next up is Methagora, the Nature Methods blog.
The Nature Methods’ blog, Methagora, was launched on October 11, 2006 by our former Chief Editor, Veronique Kiermer. The original intent of the blog was to provide a forum for discussion of papers we published. This is often the current month’s Editorial and recent blog posts have been focused on providing material to supplement the journal’s Editorial and asking readers to comment.
We encourage readers to propose discussion topics and anyone interested in breaking into ‘methods journalism’ is welcome to contact us about guest authoring some articles for the blog. If there is a particular type of blog post you are interested in please let us know and we’ll see what we can do.
We hope you enjoy the redesigned blog and check back occasionally to see what is going on.
