From Mark Welford: Discussing blogging with Lisa Briggs and Kirsty Metcalfe from the Graduate Research School at Teesside University (@TeesUniResearch). They wanted to know all about the inner workings of a research related blog with a view to entering the blogosphere.
From Sarah Smith: Meta-analysis masterclass courtesy of the Centre for Reviews and Dissemination (CRD) York where I've been on the Systematic Reviewing course this week.
From Shelina Visram: Fieldwork for the HYPER! (Hearing Young People’s views on Energy drinks: Research) study is now underway. The focus groups with schoolchildren include a fun sorting exercise to explore perceived differences between energy drinks, soft drinks and sports drinks.
A reminder from the Fuse blog group:
Each Thursday of 2014 we’ll try and post around four pictures on the Fuse blog that capture our weeks in public health research, from the awe-inspiring to the everyday and mundane. Given that more of the latter than the former exists in most of our lives, we foresee problems compiling 208 images worth posting on our own. So this is going to have to be a group project. Send an image (or images) with a sentence or two describing what aspect of your week in public health research they sum up and we’ll post them as soon as we can. You don’t have to send four together – we can mix and match images from different people in the same week.
Normal rules apply: images you made yourself are best; if you use someone else’s image please check you’re allowed to first; if anyone’s identifiable in an image, make sure they’re happy for it to be posted; nothing rude; nothing that breaks research confidentiality etc.
