Here are my Research Blogging Editor's Selections for this week.

  • Sometimes you're interested in new papers not for the main results that the authors present, but for some other data you see in a graph that might catch the corner of your eye. At Cracking the Enigma, Jon Brock discusses this, and a handy tool to help extract that data. The Adventures of DataThief!
  • At BishopBlog, Dorothy Bishop has a nice inside-baseball sort of post about the business of publishing papers in high-impact journals. Novelty, interest and replicability.
  • Having pets is a good thing, and science agrees. At Gaines, on Brains, find out about the latest research in this area: Fur-iends with Benefits.

That's it for this week... Check back next week for more great psychology and neuroscience blogging!
