Scitable blog network just got bigger and better than ever!

Those of you reading this are probably most familiar with this science blogging network – the Scientific American blogs. But this is just one of several blog networks hosted by Nature Publishing Group (NPG), Scientific American and/or our partners in other countries.

You may remember a few months ago when Nature Network and English-language version of SciLogs fused into a much better network, which you really should be following (and it’s easy, as we have a widget for them on our sidebar, scroll down a little and look to the right), the SciLogs.com.

The NPG editorial blogs can be found here. And there are also SciLogs networks in other languages and countries, including: German, Spanish and Dutch.

Today, I am very pleased to announce a big relaunch and expansion of one of our sister networks, the Nature Education’s blog network – Scitable.

Khalil A. Cassimally (who you already know as my co-blogger on The SA Incubator, and you may know is also the community manager of SciLogs.com) is the community manager of Scitable network. In his blog post today, Khalil describes what is new – 18 fantastic new bloggers were added to the already stellar line-up, making Scitable one of the most important blog networks to watch!

All the blogs – old and new – are now on the site, but individual new bloggers will publish their first posts gradually over the next few days, so keep a close eye on the network for the updates. Here are the new blogs:
