RCVSKnowledge

My third Knowledge Summary for Veterinary Evidence was published last week. It is on raw feeding and periodontal health in dogs, and is the result of joint work with James Oxley, who is a Writtle University College Animal Science graduate and is currently working as an independent researcher.

The paper can be found here: http://dx.doi.org/10.18849/ve.v3i3.153

Reporting research

I have recently published a letter to the editor in Veterinary Record regarding the use of reporting guidelines in veterinary research papers:

Hopefully this letter will lead to discussion regarding the use of reporting guidelines, and raise awareness of their importance to enabling evidence-based veterinary medicine research.

Amazon CreateSpace publishing

book_coverI have had a play around with Amazon CreateSpace self-publishing platform, using my MSc dissertation as a manuscript, and am now the proud author of a self-published book. It is available on Kindle and in hard copy in a few days. The process was pretty straight forward, so I am definitely keeping this in mind for future projects. I am not sure how much value it carries towards my academic career, but I feel self-publishing is a way of sharing information which would otherwise just gather dust.

A good post on the topic of academic self-publishing can be found here. It is worth a read, whether you agree with the concept or not. I kind of enjoyed the process of creating something new, and am happy my early research is now available to the whole world, rather than just the student who happens to come across it in the Writtle University College library.
