January 23rd: International collaboration

Happy New Year!

January’s article was Denham, Allen and Platt‘s “International collaboration in medical radiation science” from JMRS (June 2016).  This paper describes the current status of international collaboration in medical radiation science using content analysis of professional journals from the US, UK and Australia and compares this to other allied health occupations.

Read the accompanying blog by first author Gary Denham here.

T1: What are the benefits to collaborating in research – locally, nationally and internationally? Why should we bother?

T2: Denham et al looked at three MRS journals (UK, US, Australia). In a Twitter exchange last week Mark McEntee tweeted that sampling MRS journals only will miss >80% of MRS research (below is an example of his sources). Why do you think this is? How does it complicate studies like this one?


T3: How can we improve MRS collaboration? What roles do universities and our member associations play?
