ResearchBlogging.org has announced the winners of their 2010 Research Blogging Awards selected from a pool of 400 nominees. Registered bloggers on the site chose the 21 winners from 150 finalists, "so the best bloggers about peer-reviewed research were selected by their own peers." Top honors went to Ed Yong, science journalist and blogger at Not Exactly Rocket Science, for "Research Blog of the Year." Yong was also awarded "Blog Post of the Year," for a piece he wrote on a researcher's work with Muscovy drakes. Bora Zivkovic was named "Research Twitterer of the Year," by voters - no surprise there; he also received top honors in the Biology blog category. A graduate student blogger at Culturing Science was named best new blog of the year (Daily Scan featured her blog post defending Darwin's theory in light of a recent article in The Guardian here).
