Developing news

Posted by , on 26 April 2022

Read on for our news roundup of the past two weeks, with an emphasis on what has caught our eyes on twitter. We have also include a list of meetings with upcoming deadline and a selection of preLights.

It would be remiss not to mention the biggest twitter news this week; Elon Musk has struck a deal to buy the platform. Researchers are speculating what this means for the future of #SciTwitter


Academic writing is one of the top topics on our twitter feed. We enjoyed the thread below as their were so many contributors offering their own best practices. We have collated some of the Node writing advice in a blog post that you can find here.

If you are passionate about preprints and would like to gain some additional experience in science communication, then become part of the preLights community. Applications are open until this Friday and you can find out more here.

Just for fun

How many of these have you actually done?
