A Paper in Science

Last week The Periodic Table of Videos won an interesting prize.

We were named a SPORE winner by the famous journal/magazine, Science.

SPORE stands for Science Prize for Online Resources in Education.

The "prize" was having an essay published in Science.

I wrote the essay with Professor Martyn Poliakoff.

One may think: "You had to write an essay... Some prize?"

But having an article published in Science is a big deal for scientists.

Some researchers go their entire career without such an honour.

So we were thrilled to have an article published, albeit via an unusual method.

You can find it at this link.

Or click here for the PDF.

It is the second article we've published in a major journal... the other was in Nature Chemistry.

The other members of the Periodic Table of Videos team is Pete Licence, Neil Barnes, Debbie Kays, Steve Liddle, Sam Tang, Rob Stockman and John Moses.

Among numerous other people we owe a special debt of thanks to is Professor Chris Rudd.

And Brigitte Nerlich, with whom we've previously discussed ideas for journal papers.
