Standardised data on initiatives—STARDIT: Beta version

  title={Standardised data on initiatives—STARDIT: Beta version},
  author={Jack S. Nunn and Thomas M A Shafee},
  journal={Research Involvement and Engagement},
Background and objective There is currently no standardised way to share information across disciplines about initiatives, including fields such as health, environment, basic science, manufacturing, media and international development. All problems, including complex global problems such as air pollution and pandemics require reliable data sharing between disciplines in order to respond effectively. Current reporting methods also lack information about the ways in which different people and…

Patients’, clinicians’ and the research communities’ priorities for treatment research: there is an important mismatch

The findings confirm the mismatch first described by Tallon et al. 15 years ago and suggest that the research community should make greater efforts to address issues of importance to users of research, such as patients and healthcare professionals.

Citizen Science Terminology Matters: Exploring Key Terms

Much can be at stake depending on the choice of words used to describe citizen science, because terminology impacts how knowledge is developed. Citizen science is a quickly evolving field that is
