Scoring

HDBuzz writers assign each reviewed article a score.

Each article is scored according to its relevance to HD community members. This score is indicated by a thermometer icon – hotter articles are more likely to be relevant. Relevance is judged according to how closely related the research is to finding disease-slowing treatments for HD.

Research involving cells or animal models generally gets a lower thermometer rating than research in humans. Research into possible treatments boosts an article's rating, too.

These scores are the result of an individual writer’s personal evaluation. They are not fixed, or precise, and are intended as rough guidelines to help readers interpret the article.
