Looking Ahead to Change: Little by Little
I don't make New Year's Resolutions. I don't think I ever really did, but the last decade or two would have been enough to stifle that impulse. I've just been too aware that I don't have that much control over what happens in my life.

Tips welcomed regarding submitting published, peer-reviewed papers to databases (if possible)

    I had a paper published in a peer-reviewed journal back in December 2011. It took me a lot of effort to research it and write it up, and deal with the peer reviewers' comments. The abstract is below and there's a thread on it: http://forums.phoenixrising.me/index.php?threads/harm-from-get-and-cbt.13633/ .

    Unfortunately the journal is/was not PubMed-listed (and has now stopped been published), which means fewer people are aware of it.

    It had been suggested to me that I might be able to get it archived on PubMed Central to make it more visible. I searched and saw that Leonard Jason had done that with two papers of his that were published in the same journal.

    Tonight I have finally had a chance to look in to this. Unfortunately, it looks like I won't be able to archive it on PubMed Central because I'm not an NIH employee nor was it funded by the NIH (see for example: http://publicaccess.nih.gov/determine_applicability.htm




    Does anyone know whether there are any other databases I could submit it to, to try to ensure it is more widely known about? It has been referenced in a few papers/letters but would like it to be more widely known about. I did send it to hundreds of local and national patient groups around the world. I was thinking I might send it to some of the authors whose papers I referenced.

    The full paper is available free here: http://www.iacfsme.org/BULLETINFALL2011/Fall2011KindlonHarmsPaperABSTRACT/tabid/501/Default.aspx
