It's always difficult coming up with a list of the best science writers. Since the launch of RealClearScience in October 2010, we have linked to hundreds -- if not thousands -- of authors. Every one of them is worth reading.
Unlike last year's list of top science bloggers, which was purely subjective, we tried to bring something resembling a methodology to this year's list. We surveyed our archives for the authors we tended to link to the most (since January 1st of this year) and who received a tremendous number of clicks from our audience. What we found is that some of the most compelling journalism comes from writers who fly under the radar. Hopefully, this list helps bring them some well-deserved recognition.
Here is our list of the best science writers of 2014.
