In this interview with EuroScientist, Lawrence Rajendran explains why he created Matters, to change the way we communicate science. He has devised a new way of publishing science by submitting single observations to build the big Lego puzzle of science. He believes that the current way of presenting papers, based on storytelling, needs to be revisited as they tend to favour oversights of what could be perceived as negative results. He thinks this will to open science to allow greater multidisciplinary collaborations and to reach out to a wider audience, beyond the scientific community. The post Matters founder Lawrence Rajendran: the Lego approach to scientific publishing appeared first in Euroscientist magazine.
