Rob Denton, participant in Round 2 of #SciFund, has just published the latest peer-reviewed scientific paper to be supported by the #SciFund Challenge! (Click to enlarge the acknowledgements.) It’s published in Molecular Ecology, but Rob has a nice, plain English blog post describing the work in his scientific paper here.
That makes six papers from three labs that have been supported through #SciFund! You can find the list by clicking on “Coverage” above. It’s wonderful to start seeing the papers emerging from #SciFund. Ultimately, what can help convince skeptics of science crowdfunding is how many papers start to pile up that were made possible with crowdfunding.
