It’s the Summer of Love (for Posters) – vote for your favorite!

Haight – Ashbury by Doug Wertman, Flickr, CC-BY

What’s not to love about this quintessentially San Francisco photo? As some of you know, ScienceOpen has offices in Berlin, Boston and San Francisco.

It has a “rainbow” feel, appropriate for the recent US legal ruling on marriage equality. Ben and Jerry’s carries a brand of ice-cream named Cherry Garcia after the late Jerry, lead guitarist of the Grateful Dead, founded in 1965 in California. And of course, the corner of Haight and Ashbury is the epicenter of the Summer of Love, a social phenomenon that occurred during the summer of 1967, when as many as 100,000 people converged on this neighborhood in San Francisco. All these facts I have learned since living here and becoming a citizen (required knowledge to pass the test!).

For all you Earlier Career Researchers (and those who mentor them) who are currently on Summer Break but are almost certainly still working and have published a poster with us, here’s an opportunity to activate your social media networks and win yourself a $150 Amazon Gift Card!

Here’s how this competition works:

  • Make sure that you have published a poster with us.  Any name on the author list counts
  • Promote your poster on social media, ask your network to vote for your poster by giving it a +1
  • If you are active on Twitter, remember to include @Science_Open in your tweet
  • The poster with the most recommendations wins and each author receives a $150 Amazon giftcard

This competition will remain open from 11am PST July 6th until 11am PST August 31st and the winner will be announced on September 1st 2015.

For those of you who are new to the concept of digital posters, you can find out more here. At ScienceOpen we publish them for FREE – your entry receives a DOI so that it can be found and cited plus it lives on long after the conference is over.

Sounds like a sweet summer offer to us!
