PNAS Update and Index

The Project for Non-Academic Science posts have been very well received, and I continue to get a steady trickle of new volunteers. I’m going to slow the rate of posting these a little bit, as the recent posting rate has been a little ridiculous, but I’ll keep posting them as long as people keep answering questions.

Were I a more compulsively organized person, I would be tagging and indexing these in a systematic manner as I go. I’m not that organized, though, though it’s possible that I will at some point be so desperate to avoid work that I ought to be doing that I will go back and sort them.

Until and unless that happens, though, you can find all the interviews to date in the PNAS category index auto-generated by Movable Type. At the time of this writing, there are already 16 interviews posted, with more pending.

    Dude! I’ve been trying to figure out what PNAS stood for this whole time.

    Just for the record, I’ve enjoyed the series. I haven’t said anything because I haven’t had anything to say, per se, but I’ve been reading them as they come out.

    Nice to see this series. I’d volunteer myself, but I’m flat out of time at present. (I work as a independent senior computational biologist, contracting to research groups and companies.) It’s good to see others make the effort, though, and I hope it gives students a wider range of options to think about.

    I have to admit the ‘PNAS’ got me confused. At first I thought from the titles that you were reviewing PNAS (Proc. Natl. Acad. Sci. USA) papers until I looked at the content and remembered your idea of interviewing scientists working outside of academia.
