Message from Professor Ann Moore
On behalf of the Centre for Health Research it is a pleasure to have been invited to write a small piece for the inaugural issue for our new journal. This is a very welcome development for the new School of Health Sciences and I would like to thank all the members of the editorial team for all their hard work and commitment in putting the first issue of this journal together. I wish the journal well for all its future developments. Writing about and reporting regularly on research and scholarly activities is an important component of all academic members of staff routine activity. Sometimes early on in your career this can be a challenging concept and your confidence may be lacking in terms of your ability to write and to publish in an academic journal. The Journal has been set up by the editors to nurture and support members of staff and students who wish to write for an academic journal. It is anticipated that the editors’ and reviewers’ comments on your work will help to strengthen your manuscript. Through this you will learn more about how to craft research and scholarly papers that sit within your field of practice.The Journal will also give all staff the opportunity to publish their research news and thereby share research activities across the school. The journal is therefore a very welcome development in this new school and I look forward to seeing this development over
the coming years.
