More hows and whys

I’m basically in transit for the next day or so heading back to Beijing after a thoroughly enjoyable trip to the UK and Germany. In order to keep things ticking over while I am in the air (or in airport lounges) and recovering from jet lag and the time difference, here are a few other things for you all to read. I have put this in Science Basics as these fit nicely with that theme.

First off, here is a review on how to review or critique a paper by those good people at Nature.

Similarly, there is advice from Science on writing papers (though it is very brief and general) via River Continua.

More generally Matt Wedel has a big series of posts on general science communication between scientists and how new ideas are often generated and discussed. It’s a nice take on a rarely discussed area should be of interest to young academics and the general public alike. I’m not if he is finished yet, but he has so far produced four parts to the series. Read them here, and here, and here and here.
