Bora Zivkovic at A Blog Around the Clock is calling all bloggers to submit posts for the Open Laboratory 2010, a compilation of to top 52 science blog posts of the year as voted by a panel of judges including Zivkovic. To be considered, each original submission must have been (or will be) published as a blog post between December 1, 2009 and December 1, 2010. Participants may nominate as many entries as they wish, and Zivkovic says "there is no shame in self-promotion," though he warns that "history also shows that the number of entries you submit has no relation to your chances of getting picked." Of the 52 selected for publication, one is typically an original cartoon or comic strip; another will be an original poem. The remaining 50 selections will be essay-style blog posts. The editor of this year's edition and the final submission deadline are yet to be announced.
Shameless Self-Promotion… Encouraged
