We’re pleased to announce that the NIMBioS website has won a Distinguished Technical Communication award from the Society for Technical Communication’s East Tennessee Chapter. The award is the highest level of recognition in the competition. Judges considered context of purpose, design, content, usability and writing style. The following are some of the judges’ remarks:
“The web site is a testament to the fact that with careful planning and consistent execution, presentation of complex scientific material can be fun.”
“This site is very impressive in its organization of a massive amount of information in a clear, coherent way.”
“This is an attractive, interesting, and informative web site that works well on both tablet and desktop computers.”
So if you’ve not visited the NIMBioS website in a while, now might be the time. You will find a range of videos, from NIMBioS postdocs explaining their research to interviews with distinguished visiting scientists; the bi-monthly newsletter; educational as well as research and training opportunities; and lots of great features on the science we do here at NIMBioS.
Last May, the NIMBioS website won a 2011 Award of Quality from the Public Relations Society of America Volunteer Chapter. The website is written and produced by NIMBioS Senior Analyst Jane Comiskey and NIMBioS Communications Coordinator Catherine Crawley.
