Please vote for the Research Digest

Friends, please consider voting for the BPS Research Digest in the inaugural Science Seeker Awards. Science Seeker is a fantastic website that aggregates all the world's science blogs in one place and organises them by topic.

A panel of judges will select the winners from among the most nominated blog posts in different categories. Here's how you can help the Research Digest win the psychology category:

  • I self-nominated the popular Digest blog post Why Do Children Hide By Covering Their Eyes?. The more nominations it gets, the more likely it will get short-listed. You can add your nomination by visiting this page and clicking the little trophy icon in the top right-hand corner (or you can click the star to recommend it). 
  • If you'd like to nominate a different Digest blog post, there's an archive of Digest posts on the Science Seeker website. Find the one you like and click the little trophy icon - any posts published prior to February 1 2013 are eligible. [more details on the awards here].

Thanks so much for your support. 2013 marks ten years since the launch of the BPS Research Digest service, so it would be a wonderful anniversary present to be short-listed (or win!) a Science Seeker award. The deadline for nominations is March 31.

PS. If the Digest were lucky enough to win, as editor I would donate any potential cash prize to a mental health charity.
