More and more, scientists are becoming interested in understanding the ways in which the general public, students, and even scientists understand climate science. Here is a short – and thus incomplete – set of papers researchers might find useful for developing research questions around climate science in education, communication, or similar fields. Andersson, B., &Continue reading “Climate science education research: a short bibliography”
I was disappointed when Beall’s list was taken offline last year, and so was equally excited to find it back online under a new web address. Check out Beall’s list of predatory publishers and journals, and make sure you THINK CHECK SUBMIT before you publish!

There is something transformative about working in a lab where lab members look out for eachContinue reading “On The Awesomeness of Graduate Students”
