The Research Blog – a new look!

In an effort to improve the research blog, we have added a few updates including a brand new face lift.

  • Home page
    Posts are now grouped by category, rather than as displayed as a full list. If you’d still like to see the full list of blog posts in date order, there is a link to the full blog at the top of the home page.
  • Individual blog posts
    Adding a blog post works in the same way, but the published post has a slightly different look to reflect the new brand.

    You can attach images as normal to your blog post.  However, if you want this image to appear next to the summary of your post shown on the blog homepage and on the daily digest then you also need to click on ‘set featured image’ (from the menu options, normally under ‘tags’) and select the image.

    Please do continue to share information, experiences, successes, advice and news with colleagues, and to promote your research both internally and externally through regular blog posts.

  • Daily digest
    The daily digest also has a new improved look.  Make sure that you are subscribed to receive the daily digest emails; this is the best way to keep up to date with research and knowledge exchange information at BU.

If you experience any problems with the updated blog, then please email

We are still looking to make further improvements, so if you have any comments please do complete our Research Blog Survey.

Please note, if you are using an older version of Internet Explorer and are having issues with the blog layout, please ensure that ‘compatibility view’ is disabled via the icon in the address bar.
