About Small Pond

This site is about how scientists research, teach and mentor in all kinds of academic institutions, including teaching-centered universities.

It’s often said that research and teaching are compatible. It’s funny how often people repeat that notion, as if they’re trying to convince themselves of something. We honestly don’t know how compatible they are, but we prioritize both of them.

Terry McGlynn is the Editor-In-Chief, and Amy Parachnowitsch and Catherine Scott are Contributing Editors.

In addition to a free email subscription, you can get tweets of new posts via @SmallPondSci, and each of us are @hormiga@EvoEcoAmy, and @Cataranea.

The ads being run on Small Pond Science are supporting student researchers, and also used to compensate guest authors. If you would like to replace these ads with a sponsorship, drop Terry and line and we can talk over the options. We’d much prefer a sponsor that is more aligned to the topic of the site!
