Notes from the research frontier is a blog about research, science, academia and the daily dilemmas of being a researcher. It is a forum where research can be openly discussed. The aim of this blog is to give a voice to those of us working out there in the research wilderness, wherever that may be.
Being a researcher: In their day-to-day, researchers are confronted with getting a PhD, writing projects, seeking grants, receiving constructive (and not-so-constructive) criticism, the publication process, job insecurity, supervising, conflicts of interest, work/ life balance and constant competition. In this blog, researchers can raise issues, give tips on these topics, and share with the research community.
Science & research: This blog explores and discusses research findings from a variety of disciplines, especially on work aiming to achieve social justice and the reduction of social inequalities.
Notes from the research frontier is edited by Michelle Kelly-Irving, a social epidemiologist working in the research frontierland of Toulouse, in South West France.
