Bloggers for Peer-Reviewed Research Reporting

BPR3 came about because several academic bloggers in different fields saw the need to distinguish their “serious” writing from news, politics, family, bagpipes, and so on.

And so, Dave Munger of Cognitive Daily, Sister Edith Bogue of Monastic Musings, and others got together and set BPR3. Their first task was to come up with an icon that bloggers can use to identify reporting on peer-reviewed journal articles. They have received entries, narrowed it down to three, and between now and Sept. 24 they will be allowing people to vote to select their favourite.   They plan to use BPR3 to aggregate postings on peer-reviewed research.

I really like both the idea of an icon to signify “peer reviewed research”, and the idea of an aggregator.
