It is a special excitement to be invited to arrange a quick Foreword to Biomedical learn: how one can plan, submit and current it, via William F. Whimster. 90 years have elapsed considering the fact that T. Clifford Allbutt, the Regius Professor of Physic on the college of Cambridge, released his c1assic paintings of 1904 Notes at the Composition of clinical Papers. Small in dimension, yet deep in knowledge, it is still a remarkably invaluable, if a bit outdated, publication, nonetheless weIl worthy analyzing. due to the fact that 1904, and especially within the final 25 years, there was an avalanche of books on medical variety. Medawar has aptly saw that "most scientists have no idea the best way to write, insofar as variety betrays I' homme meme, they write as though they hated writing and wish ed not anything greater than to have performed with it. " Whimster's booklet has a broader target than such a lot of this style. not like Allbutt, who was once addressing ordinarily those that have been writing their theses to procure the MD, Whimster writes for the younger clinical scientists who're making plans and writing up an account in their examine, both for pub lication in medical journals, or for presentation of the medical fabric at conferences. Whimster, a scientist and an skilled lengthy time period technological know-how editor, has written an updated model of an previous and intensely profitable quantity, examine, the best way to Plan, communicate and Write approximately It, edited by way of C. Hawkins and M. Sorgi.

Mathematical morphology (MM) is a strong technique for the quantitative research of geometrical constructions. It includes a wide and coherent number of theoretical options, nonlinear sign operators, and algorithms aiming at extracting, from photos or different geometrical gadgets, info on the topic of their form and dimension.

It provides an excellent source of references, and summarises established and accepted theories and practice. The drawback is that a book is only as current as the year it was published. It is out of date from its birth. The acadernic journal is the remedy to this problem. It has been the principal vehicle of communication in science since the 1660s (Chapter 15). Current and original international research is published for the research community in many forms: • • • • • technical reports critical reviews editorials letters randomised controlled trials Literature searching and infonnation retrieval 15 • meta-analyses of trials • rapid (brief) communications A review article that gives a state-of-the-art, global overview of your research activity, with an extensive bibliography, can be a launching pad to further items of potential interest.
Test. Tust to make observations is therefore not enough; the case must be searched for its originality and for what enlightenment the observations might bring to physiology or pathology, or for how they might enhance clinical practice or understanding; or if none of these, further observations that might do so can be sought, sometimes in vain. Further research often involves the study of groups of cases to see how often, when and where the initial individual observations or diseases occur, so that one can determine why they occur.
Patent information is another source of highly novel, technical and descriptive detail which may form the state of the art in any given area. Primary information is not restricted solely to formal resources of this nature. What of informal channels of communication among colleagues? A colleague down the corridor can often be a useful source of advice and information. More important, making that first visit to your library or information service may save you hours of wasted time. Learning to ask for advice is not an admission of incompetence or failure.
