After nearly six years wearing the same shoes, Sciblogs is getting a new set of trainers!

From Monday, our new website will feature the work of 30 or so scientists, researchers and writers, with guest contributions from many more. We’ll have some new bloggers coming onboard over the next couple of months and a focus on research news, drawing on the wealth of content now available on our sister site Scimex.

To properly manage the import of nearly 8,000 posts from the current site to the new one, we’ll need to stop new posts from appearing from 8am tomorrow morning, Friday 7 August, until 9am Monday 10 August. No new content will appear on Sciblogs over that time – you’ll just have to get out of the house, walk the dog or catch a movie.

We also won’t be accepting new comments on posts during that period as well. Everything will be restored to normality on Monday morning.

Thanks for your patience and for being a loyal reader over the years. We hope to bring you even more interesting and engaging content over the years to come.

Here’s a glimpse of what the new Sciblogs will look like – clean, visual and minimalist was the design brief!
