I am the Software Editor for HMS Beagle (http://hmsbeagle.com), a webzine
for biomedical researchers. I am looking for "working scientists" that are
interested in writing reviews of scientific software. HMS Beagle pays for
these reviews, and if we are able to provide the software, you also get to
keep the package.
If you are interested, please send me email (bulseco at os.com) for more
details. Basically, the questions that I will ask you are:
1. who you are?
2. what you do (e.g. graduate student?, post-doc, undergrad?, faculty?)?
3. what software package you are interested in reviewing (check out our
archives to see recent reviews)?
4. can you provide a writing sample?
NOTE: To read the reviews, FREE membership to BioMedNet is required. It
takes a few minutes to fill out the info, but membership is complete FREE!
ALSO: by 'working' scientist, I just prefer scientists that are (or were)
actively doing research, teaching etc.
Here are the relevant URLs:

Software archives can be seen at:
if you don't want to spend the time to register now, but want to see a list
of the reviews covered (this list is not up to date, but covers all reviews
through 1997), you can go to:
