At AoB Blog we encourage scientists to blog because we think it’s a good idea for scientists to tell people about their research, including other scientists. Some measures like Altmetric and Impact Story think this is a good thing too, but not everyone does.
Yesterday PeerJ posted a presentation on their blog, where Jonathan Eisen shows how some grant reviewers can hold blogging against you.
Let’s hope this doesn’t dissuade new journal Nature Plants from posting to their new blog.
