Scientific blogs: “a distinctive space between academic research and journalism”

“Mark Carrigan finds that academic blogging holds out the possibility of extending the role of the academic, rather than threatening its diminution. It allows for discoverability, less specialised communication, and a degree of space and freedom to extend beyond the realms of research.”


I am one of the people who made the same experience. So: I agree and I also think that there are more chances than risks. It´s simply part of the daily academic work in these days. And thats good.
