Hai sa incepem cu o selectie de neuroblog-uri facuta chiar de SfN, The Society for Neuroscience.

"Fix reason firmly in her seat, and call to her tribunal every fact, every opinion. Question with boldness even the existence of a God; because, if there be one, he must more approve of the homage of reason, than that of blindfolded fear."

-- Thomas Jefferson, letter to his nephew Peter Carr, from Paris, August 10, 1787; Merrill D. Peterson, ed., Thomas Jefferson: Writings, New York: Library of America, 1994, pp. 900-906.

Imi place Naturally Selected, blogul staff-ului de la The Scientist. Printre altele, acolo se arata si ca 'science is actually cool' si ca gusturile muzicale ale ihtiologilor isi pun amprenta intr-un anumit sens si asupra reusitelor in cariera lor. smile.gif Adaugati-l in ecuatie pe Bobby McFerrin, si reteta postarii devine completa.

La sectiunea de editoriale de pe site-ul revistei Nature apare un text intitulat "Blogs and online comments can provide valuable feedback on newly published research. Scientists need to adjust their mindsets to embrace and respond to these new forums for debate." Pornind de la controversa recenta privitoare la rezultatele studiului finantat de NASA asupra unei bacterii care traieste intr-un mediu cu mult arsenic si putin fosfor, sunt recunoscute cateva merite ale blogurilor si comentariilor pe teme de stiinta:

QUOTE
Nature strongly encourages post-publication discussion on blogs and online commenting facilities as a complement to — but not a substitute for — conventional peer review. Yet it is true that so far online commenting and blogs have generally contributed little. Of the thousands of papers published every year, only a few attract substantive comments. [...]

Bloggers and online commentators have an important part to play in the assessment of research findings, and many researchers' blogs, in particular, contain better analyses of the true significance of a scientific finding or debate than is seen in much of the mainstream media. Science journalists who repeated NASA's claims on the arsenic bacterium and did not tap into the widespread criticisms, did little to defend themselves from claims of reporting by press release. Blogging scientists, meanwhile, should remember that such informal forums do not excuse insults and casual discourtesy towards colleagues — especially those being urged to respond.


Concluzia finala -

QUOTE
In the end, the scientific truth will prevail, as it usually does. In the meantime, researchers must accept some harsh truths about the speed and spread of digital criticism.


Bine-ar fi sa putem spune acelasi lucru despre dezbaterile teologice.
