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

The next edition of Scientia Pro Publica (Science for the People) will publish this Monday and as usual, it is seeking submissions and hosts! Can you help by sending URLs for your own or others’ well-written science, medicine, and nature blog essays to me or by volunteering to host this carnival on your blog?


This week’s edition of Scientia Pro Publica (Science for the People); “Scientia Pro Publica 26” was published by Dan at his group blog, Genomics Law Report.

The next issue of Scientia will (hopefully!) be published this Monday by our favorite Swedish beekeeper, Mel, at her blog, Melliferax. Can we all find at least 25 submissions in the next 7 days for Scientia?

Only you can help by sending links to your — or other people’s — writing. To do this, either use this automated submission form or use the cute little widget on the right (be aware that widget doesn’t upload when the mother site is nonfunctional, and ALWAYS check your email/spam filter for your submission receipt to be sure it was sent properly). Alternatively, you can also send the link directly to the Scientia Blog Carnival email address.

So don’t hesitate to provide your assistance: there are thousands of you reading this announcement who read widely throughout the blogosphere, and each one of you will read a science, environment, nature or medical blog essay that is worth sharing with a wider audience. When you run across that essay, send the link to me so I can provide that essay with a broader reach than it otherwise would have. Don’t be afraid to send in someone else’s work; these blog writers appreciate and are honored that someone “out there” has read their work and appreciated it enough to suggest it to Scientia Pro Publica. (Besides, they want an audience; otherwise, they wouldn’t have published their essay on a blog!) If you wish to get credit for your discovery, include the name or pseudonym that you wish that credit to go to.
