About this blog

The Blog section of External Diffusion is made up of articles we write about the benefits of formating, sharing and promoting your scientific discoveries. We strongly believe in this process, but realize it’s fairly new to a wide part of the community and thus have decided to explain our train of thoughts through the articles present here.

We will also host guest posts about academia, research, publishing, science communication, metrics, etc. So if you want your opinion featured here, just reach out!

Feel free to browse, read and participate in the discussion via the comments section!
