After nearly six years in operation, Australasia’s largest blog network is getting a facelift and some fresh voices.
Sciblogs features commentary from around 30 scientists and science writers and is consistently ranked among the country’s top 10 blogs based on Sitemeter statistics.
But the platform is well overdue for a revamp and will soon be relaunched with a new look, new additions to the blogging line-up and a remit of appealing to a wider audience.
Among the changes will be:
- A more visual look and refreshed blog homepages
- Mobile-friendly design so Sciblogs looks good on smartphones and tablets
- Some new bloggers covering everything from drones to psychology
- News content drawing from sources such as our new Scimex.org research news portal.

We are on the lookout for new science bloggers to join our lively stable of bloggers and as well as writers, videographers and social media gurus who are passionate about science communication and who are keen to collaborate on Sciblogs.
“The likes of Iflscience, Science Alert and the science blog networks of Scientific American and Scienceblogs shows there’s strong appetite for science news and commentary,” said Sciblogs editor and Science Media Centre Director, Peter Griffin.
“We want to grow the Sciblogs community featuring the best, most interesting science from New Zealand and around the world. We’ll improve our mobile and social media presence so Sciblogs content is easier to browse and share.”
The new Sciblogs will go live by the end of August – contact Sciblogs editor Peter Griffin if you would like to get involved.
