3QD Science Prize Semifinalists 2015

The voting round of our science prize (details here) is over. Thanks to the nominators and the voters for participating.

So here they are, the top 23 (there was a tie for the last six places), in descending order from the most voted-for:

  1. Thinking of Things: The Pain in the Brain Game
  2. Thinking of Things: All I Didn't Know About Cancer
  3. Excursion Set: Destiny's Child
  4. Los Angeles Review of Books: Three Physicists Try Philosophy

The editors of 3 Quarks Daily will now pick the top six entries from these, and after possibly adding up to three “wildcard” entries, will send that list of finalists to Nick Lane for final judging. We will post the shortlist of finalists tomorrow.
