Praxis: A new carnival about the scientific life

The first edition of the new carnival Praxis has just been posted at A Blog around the Clock.

Here's a description of what the carnival is all about:

The carnival is intended to cover all aspects of life as an academic, whether it's the lifestyle, career progress, doing a Ph.D., getting funding, climbing the slippery pole, academic life as a minority, working with colleagues and students, dealing with the peer-review process, publishing, grants, science 2.0, amusing anecdotes, conference experiences, philosophical musings, public engagement, or even historical articles about what life was like in the good (or bad) old days.

Here's a list of the next bunch of editions.

For this first edition, Bora has gathered together a great big triple handful of posts covering a whole bunch of different topics areas: Doing Science, Career Choices and Getting Funded, Presenting Data, Sharing and Networking, Getting Published, The Publishing Business, Science Communication and Education, Academic Atmosphere and Special topic of the month: Animal Research.

There's really way to much here for most of us to get around to reading more than a selection, but on the other hand virtually everyone will be able to find more than a few gems.
