Nam et ipsa scientia potestas est (And thus knowledge itself is power)
— Sir Francis Bacon.

Scientia Pro Publica (Science for the People) blog carnival was just published! This blog carnival celebrates the best science, nature and medical writing published in the blogosphere within the past 60 days. This particular issue — the third — is the first to be hosted at a location other than here, and I am very pleased with the result! So go read Scientia Pro Publica 3: the Swine ‘flu Edition and leave a comment there!

To send your science, nature or medical writing to Scientia Pro Publica, either use this automated submission form or use the cute little widget on the right. Be sure to include the URL or “permalink”, the essay title and, to make life easier for the host, please include a 2-3 sentence summary.

The host for the 18 May edition is Eric, author of The Primate Diaries. If you are interested in hosting this carnival on your blog, please contact me as soon as possible or notify the current host (please note that I prefer hosts who have had their writing included in one or more editions of this carnival). Scientia Pro Publica is published on the first and third Monday of each month, so feel free to choose a particular date, or I’ll assign you the first available date.
