National Digital Stewardship Alliance. “Case Study: Science, Medicine, Mathematics, and Technology Blogs.” (Dec 2013): 1–4. Print.

p.1: Blogs on topics in science, medicine, technology, and mathematics have significant research value for historians, sociologists, and anthropologists of the twenty-first century as they:

  • Reflect and may influence a wide range of viewpoints, and capture dissenting opinions and new trends not found in other publications
  • Serve as a record of who did what and when and will serve as a data mine for understanding trends in scientific practices and attitudes, and how ideas evolve
  • Provide insight into the environment of science, medicine, technology, and mathematics
  • Show how science, medicine, technology, and mathematics is communicated among collaborators and broadly in the scientific community
