About the Fossil Friday Roundup…

Hey folks! Sarah here. I just wanted to send a quick message for those of you looking for the Fossil Friday Roundup. The roundup takes a fair amount of time to compile each week, and I have been finding it increasingly harder to keep up with posting it in recent weeks.

If you enjoy catching up on all of the latest in the paleosphere, I don’t want to let you down. But I need to take a step back from posting weekly roundups, at least for a little while. I’m brainstorming ways in which I could approach the Fossil Friday Roundup in different ways that are more time efficient for me as well as useful to you, our fantastic paleo community readers. I’d love to hear your thoughts or feedback, so please comment below letting me know if you like the roundups, what could be improved, what would be useful to you, etc.

We still very regularly post new open access papers on our Twitter feed, which you can access here.

I’d like to spend more time writing about actual recent papers, which has taken a back seat in order to make the roundup happen each week.

I also still want to support the National Fossil Day by letting the community know about events related to NFD. You can see my recent post on that here, which will be updated as frequently as I receive updates!

Anywho, just wanted to give you all an update. I don’t intend to put away the FFR forever, just for a little while so that I can spend some time bringing you other content. Please follow our Twitter feed for regular postings of new open access papers in all journals, as well as other content! And check back here for news on new papers, from me as well as my co-editors Andy and Jon!
