I wanted to bring to everyone’s attention the new community-science blog, Rapid Ecology, a blog written for ecologists, by ecologists. Science blogs are significant drivers of scientific discourse, yet only a few blogs have broad visibility. Rapid Ecology is intended to address this issue by providing a platform for many voices. If you have something to say and you’d like other ecologists to hear you, Rapid Ecology is designed to be your megaphone. Rapid Ecology invites posts written for a general audience focusing on new research, professional aspects of being an ecologist, musings on the natural world, tips on methodology, or anything broadly interesting to the ecology community. The site is also interested in monthly themed columns from single-authors. Recent posts have tackled imposter syndrome, academic accountability, species distribution modeling, and whether manuscript cover letters have outlived their usefulness. You can find Rapid Ecology at rapidecology.com and take a closer look at the submission guidelines at rapidecology.com/submission-guidelines/ You can also follow Rapid Ecology on Twitter: @RapidEcology I and the fellow members of the editorial board look forward to your submissions! Rapid Ecology Associate Editors: Jeff Atkins, Alissa Brown, Paul Caplat, Anna Carter, Luke Lamb, Graziella Iossa, Elisabeth Maxwell, Terry McGlynn, Julua Mlynarek, Elva Robinson, Casey TerHorst, Ruth Schmidt, Giulio Valentino Dalla Riva, and Luke Lamb (Managing Editor)
