Some site news:
Now that summer is upon us, Casual Fridays is going to take a little hiatus. Don’t worry, it will be back next fall, but it’s pretty much impossible for us to keep Casual Fridays going in the summer since we’ll be traveling quite a bit. We can schedule regular posts in advance, but Casual Fridays require us to respond in real-time.
Also, over the next few days, I anticipate doing a little design work on the site. If things don’t look or work quite right, please let me know in a comment on this post, or you could also e-mail me using the “Contact” link above.
Update: A question — I want to make a distinction between traditional Cognitive Daily posts where we report on a peer-reviewed journal article, and posts like Casual Fridays or the Ask a ScienceBlogger replies. We could call the “serious” posts “peer-reviewed,” but would that create confusion? Our posts aren’t peer reviewed; the articles we’re writing about are. Another possibility is a “Just the Science” category, like PZ Myers used to have on Pharyngula. Or how about just “Research”?
Any other ideas on how to highlight the posts where we report on peer-reviewed research?
