It is now expected by the science blogosphere that I post the full updated listing of all the submissions every Monday morning. This serves as a reminder for bloggers to submit their (and other people’s) posts, and to some extent prevents duplicate entries. But most importantly, it presents a growing listing of some of the most exciting work on science blogs. This is a weekly post where bloggers can discover each other and discover blogs they were not previously aware of. Thus it is also a promotion for all the bloggers involved.
We accept essays, stories, poetry, cartoons/comics, and original art.
Help us spread the word by displaying these badges (designed by Doctor Zen):
Or take the Open Lab 2011 submission bookmarklet - Open Lab - and drag the link to your browser's toolbar to have it always handy as you browse around science blogs.
