BPR3, or Bloggers for Peer-Reviewed Research Reporting has announced the release of their new icons. For those of you who don’t know what this is all about, it’s pretty simple. When we’re not making up lolcats, and being all super-serious, we want to have a simple way to communicate to the audience that we’re discussing the scientific literature itself. That is, we’re not just reacting to idiotic press releases, poorly-written articles in major newspapers, or the latest misunderstanding of science by some crank. We’re actually reading the science before we pontificate about it.
This should be encouraged. So here are my 6 posts I’ve attached the logo to so far. You may remember some of them.
