A multidisciplinary team of ecologists, including Joaquín, has started a blog in the Spanish online journal eldiario.es. The blog Ciencia Crítica will make a critical review to current practice in research and research policies, with an special focus in Spain. The posts made by  Fernando Valladares, Luis Santamaría, Jordi Moya, Miguel Angel Rodriguez-Gironés, Joaquín Hortal and Adrián Escudero will seek ways of improving the robustness and effectiveness of the Spanish scientific system, while transmitting young researchers and the general public what is good practice in science and why some aspects of research work are the way they are now.

The first post, entitled “Reasons for confidence“, makes a general introduction to the blog in Spanish.
