Blogging for researchers: follow up

Following the recent GSMZ workshop, here are a few posts which might be of help to attendees and other would-be bloggers:

Posting your work in progress on research blogs (Vitae)

Writing for blogs (Andy Coverdale)

On collaborative blogging as a scholarly activity (Ernesto Priego)

'Social Media: Friend or Foe?' (Leicester) provides plenty of advice on copyright issues.

The blogroll (right-hand side) has recently been updated, but I would welcome your own suggestions in the comments below. If any of you have started blogging since the workshop, let me know! It would be good to put together a list of Leicester postgraduate bloggers.


  1. Hi,

    This is my blog,

    which I originally set up as a personal one but decided, after the workshop, that I could include my work with it.

    1. Thanks Pete! Glad the workshop helped with your decision. I've added you to the blogroll.

  2. Thanks for sharing the resources. I was aware of the existence of Vitae and PhD2Published, but not of the other two.
    I wrote myself a blogpost on the benefits of a science blog, I hope you find it useful.


  3. Thanks Julio! I've added your site to the blog list and will encourage science postgrads to check out your advice.
