The end of the year is a time when most of us reflect on what happened the 12 months prior, and what we want to accomplish in the next year. My personal to-do list includes regular items like saving money and trying to shed a few of the pounds I put on on during the past month’s holiday festivities.
But if you are a researcher or scientist, no doubt funding for 2015 projects is also on your mind. We recently read this article from The New York Times that we think is a great summation of what we are trying to explore, and what we hope to encourage here at Before the Abstract (and through our Springer Storytellers project). Take a look, and the next time you are pitching for those research dollars, consider a story to help close the deal.
Enjoy the end of ’14, and we hope you visit us many times in the new year!
