Ten Simple Rules for Effective Online Outreach

Exciting news for the DSN team! What we do here on this site — our mission and core values — have now been immortalized in the peer-reviewed scientific literature. Yeah, baby!

It’s been a long time in the making, but we’re so happy to announce the publication of “Ten Simple Rules for Effective Online Outreach”, a new open access article in the eponymous series at PLoS Computational Biology. All of this blogging irreverence actually takes a lot of behind-the-scenes planning and strategizing. That’s something that’s has taken years of hard work and trial-and-error approaches here at DSN — an approach and mindset we thought was valuable to share with the scientific community. So please read, share, and enjoy. We’d love to hear your thoughts and comments!

  1. So why is this in a computational biology journal? Biology I get. The computational, not so much. :)
