The reverse side is distinct to the specific category, except for the
prizes for Chemistry and Physics, which share their reverse side design.

Scientia Pro Publica (Science for the People) blog carnival was just published! The "Scientia Pro Publica 13: Nobel Prize Edition" of Scientia Pro Publica is hosted by me and was just published. This blog carnival celebrates the best science, nature and medical writing published in the blogosphere within the past 60 days.
To send your science, nature or medical writing to Scientia Pro Publica, either use this automated submission form or use the cute little widget on the right. Be sure to include the URL or "permalink", the essay title and, to make life easier for the host, please include a 2-3 sentence summary. Remember, this blog carnival focuses on communicating to the public, so your essays must be understandable to non-specialists. Further, this blog carnival is not a vehicle for transmitting pseudoscience or advertising to the public -- there are plenty of venues available for that.
The next edition of this blog carnival will be published on 19 October 2009 and will be hosted by Luke at Genetic Inference. If you are interested in hosting this carnival on your blog, please contact me as soon as possible or notify the current host (please note that I prefer hosts who have had their writing included in one or more editions of this carnival). I need hosts for 16 November, 7 & 21 December and all editions that will publish in 2010. Scientia Pro Publica is published on the first and third Monday of each month, so feel free to choose a particular date, or I'll assign you the first available date.
