Open Laboratory 2013 – the complete list of entries!
We just closed the submission form for the 2013 edition. Thank you all who submitted the posts.
Below are all the blog posts submitted over the past year. I need to crowdsource some help first. In the comments, please let me know if you notice any duplicates, any posts that are outside of the Oct.1, 2011 – Oct.1, 2012 date range, any spamblog/plagiarised works of others, or anything other improper.
I’d also appreciate it if someone actually counted the entries so we know the final number. Thanks.
Year’s editor will be announced soon, and then the judging process will commence. In the meantime, read the 2012 edition!
