Dal science blog makes scientific articles accessible to lay-audience

August 13, 2018

A blog by Dalhousie University MSc Candidate Emma Finlayson-Trick has attracted worldwide attention, reports the Star Halifax. The blog, titled “Think of the PLOSibilities,” makes scientific articles accessible to a lay-audience, and covers published papers that run the gamut of science and medicine. Finlayson-Trick explained that she created the blog after many scientific journals embraced open publishing. Although the move is a “great step forward,” Finlayson-Trick stated that the articles can be hard for non-scientists to understand. Dal professor Craig McKormick added that the blog can help break down the complexities of rapid scientific progress.
