Couldn't agree more Iansbergen!
I hope Newton is not too good for PLoS?
It annoyed me when Mikovits complained about having lots of papers no one would publish. Particularly when the sloppily rushed but highly influential XMRV-negative study which first cast doubt over the WPI's findings was published by PLoS.
Better to have it published in PLoS than not at all or with a major delay (some journals take over a year to publish).

yes very frustrating muscle research is so important - hang in there @lansbergen
Sorry - I don't have 45 mins to spare! Can someone summarise it?
Guidance for health professionals from Julia Newton sounds great. Hope it overrides that of Clare Gerada and Trudie Chalder eek
(Probably a bit over-optimistic there)
And the latest from Newcastle's Facebook Page:
Good news, and interesting, re the BMJ article being one of the most downloaded.
Thanks for posting Russ.
Does anyone from PR go to these conferences? I'm usually at the newcastle ones
It would be great if we could have more people attending conferences like these and reporting back for PR, perhaps in the form of a short article (it certainly needn't be as long as one of mine!). We can help to make any necessary arrangements and also help you prepare and write the article(s), and we can pay for article(s) and also pay some expenses for attending the conference. So if anyone's ever interested in doing this, please contact me.
I'd be willing to do the newcastle one as long as my dictaphone doesn't cock up on the day
Cool. I've started a conversation with you; hopefully we can work something out.
