Nominations for the Research Blogging Awards 2010 are now open. These awards are designed to recognise "the best of the best" when it comes to posts about peer-reviewed journal articles.

Any blog that discusses peer-reviewed research is eligible for nomination, and the winners will be determined by votes from their peers in the Research Blogging community. All finalists will be highlighted on, and winners will receive cash prizes totaling $2000. Anyone can nominate blogs to be considered for the awards and nominations close February 11, 2010. Click here to nominate your favorites.

A panel of expert judges will select 5 to 10 finalists in each category, who will be announced February 25, 2010. Registered users of can then vote for the winners between February 25 to March 11, 2010. The winners will be announced on March 23, 2010.

Do vote for your favourite blogs and obviously, I will be grateful for any of you wanted to nominate Not Exactly Rocket Science in any of the available categories. I think I'm probably out of the running for Best Blog - German Language, but Best Blog - Biology and Best Lay-Level Blog are possibilities, as are Blog Post of the Year and Research Twitterer of the Year.
