Dear Methodspace members.
I have recently taken over as the secretary of Mensa's Academics Special Interest Group.
The newsletter currently leaves a lot to be desired, yet I am dedicated to making it a much more interesting and useful publication. If you are a member of Mensa and either a university student or employee and would like to contribute please email me right away.
We will have a regular Dr's Surgery - that is an agony uncle piece, Blog watch - the best of academic blogs, Methodologies - a feature looking at the pros and cons of various methodologies, Conference hall of fame - pictures from your conferences and posters, Abstracts from your papers - these must have been either assessed or peer reviewed, The Big Debate - discussions and arguments on academic matters, General letters, Funding focus - tips and information about gaining funding for research.
This is not an exhaustive list and I welcome other articles and suggestions. You may wish to volunteer on a permanent basis or just send the odd letter. No matter how much you can contribute it will all be received with sincere gratitude.
Attached is a sneak peak at the before and after face lift. Hope you like it :)
