Announcing: Open Lab 2013 Authors

ScienceOnline is pleased to announce the selections to be included in the Open Lab 2013 anthology of the best science writing online. Many thanks to Scott Huler (our tireless 2013 editor) and the team of volunteer judges who helped us narrow down the vast nominations. It was a hard task! Congratulations to each of these science writers!

The essays/posts will be published in ePublication format (teaming up with Atavist) and will be available early in 2013.

The next round of nominations for Open Lab will be a part of the process for the 2014 ScienceSeeker awards (read about the 2013 ScienceSeeker awards here). The nomination process and judging will take place in the Spring of 2014. Finalists for the ScienceSeeker awards will be included in the next edition of Open Lab. More information about the nomination process will be posted online and announced at ScienceOnline Together 2014 (in Raleigh, NC, Feb 27-Mar 1).
