Postgenomic collates posts from life science blogs and then does useful and interesting things with that data.
It's sort of like a hot papers meeting with the entire biomed blogging community.
Postgenomic's primary purpose is to act as an open access repository of literature reviews and conference reports.
A review in our case is an analysis of - or a piece of useful information concerning - a scientific paper.
Interestingly, they are using a microformat to tag reviews:
The first option is to mark an anchor tag that links to the URL of the paper with a rev="review" attribute, like so:I read an <a rev="review" href="[URL of paper]">interesting paper in Science</a> today...
That's it: that's all there is to it. Your post will be picked up and should appear in the reviews section the next time that Postgenomic is updated.
If you're comfortable with HTML, an alternative is to use the hReview microformat: encase the review in a <div class="hreview"> and put a class="url" attribute in the anchor tag that links to the subject of the review. For example:This text isn't counted as part of the review
I read an <a class="url" href="[URL of paper]">interesting paper in Science</a> today...
Nor is this text
Pretty cool I think. A very powerful demonstration of enhancing the online scientific conversation.
