Research Blogging Icon

You may have noticed I used an icon in my latest post on Ammodramus indicating I was blogging on peer-reviewed research.

This icon is part of a toolset developed by BPR3 (Bloggers for Peer-Reviewed Research Reporting), complete with guidelines for use. Clicking the icon provides a link to a list of all the other bloggers writing about peer-reviewed research, providing a two-way database. I think the idea is great, and will use it in all future posts where I talk in detail about peer-reviewed articles. The icon will cue you in that I am not just spewing my mouth off, but am trying to make a quality post on some subject. We'll see how it goes.
