The Scholarly Kitchen is always a source we learn from and enjoy reading. They are celebrating their 10 year anniversary by sharing their top 10 blog posts in their recent release. Some of those – to be exact, five – are all about PLOS ONE. It is a favorite topic for the writers as well as the readers considering those five posts alone have been viewed more than 840,000 times. This just reinforces the popularity and importance that PLOS ONE brings as one of the most important innovations in scholarly publishing.
However, my favorite post on the list is The Typography of Authority — Do Fonts Affect How People Accept Information? I confess to being one of those typography/design nerds and believe the font you choose can reveal much about the writer/designer, as well as help or hinder the telling of your story.
It is like those interview questions — “if you were a tree, what kind of tree would you be?” Well, if I was a font, I would be Poor Richard. How about you?
