Academics - please could you take a moment to fill out my survey on email etiquette and academic titles in the UK and US - respondents from other countries also welcome.

Dr v Prof: Academic Titles in the UK and USThis survey is to help establish the best ways to politely address academics in Britain and the US e.g. in formal emails (job applications, PhD applications, invitation to speak at a conference). I am particularly interested in what recipients themselves perceive to be polite. Let's assume our recipient has a PhD and carries out research as part of their role, they probably also teach. Many academics are not especially keen on hierarchy, status,...

Do variations in the structure of the brain influence aspects of behaviour? Are variations in brain structure influenced by specific skills or abilities?

Prof. Maggie Snowling at her drinks reception this afternoon. She is leaving the University of York to become President of St Johns College, Oxford. As well as being a leading researcher in the fields of development, reading and language, she's been a very effective leader and mentor to her research team; remarkably of 30 PhDs and postdocs she supervised at York, 24 have gone on to academic posts (compared with 3% nationally across the sciences).

Google hands-free hotword voice search in chrome doesn't seem to be available to me. Also, the hotword still doesn't work on Android KitKat Google Nexus 4 phone if using British English. What's up +Google UK ?

Should it be Dr, or Prof? Turns out it's different on either side of the Atlantic. Data-driven academic email etiquette.

Academics - please take three minutes to fill out my survey on email etiquette when contacting academics you haven't met before. For example, is it OK to say "Hi Rich!", or is "Dear Dr Feynman" better. Or would it be "Dear Professor Feynman"? And is it the same in different English-speaking countries (it focusses on UK/US but others are invited to fill it out, too)

Was disappointed to see how few responses you got--this is a great topic!  

To get the ball rolling here, what do you think about the pros/cons of blogging "extra data," the stuff that doesn't fit into the overall story of the papers you're submitting but you know others might find interesting?  It's a shame to see good data get stuffed in a file drawer!  Is there any way this could hurt you, coauthors, or lab members?  How would you go about blogging "extra data" like this, and how would you credit the people involved?
