Apparently I am on a publishing roll! First came my textbook, and now my latest literary masterpiece:
Adverse Events Following Immunization: Evaluating an Enhanced Nursing Role for PHNs
Sadly, you can only read the full article if you (or the organization for which you work or the organization at which you go to school) has a subscription to the journal – Canadian Nurse. But it’s well worth the read if you can get your hands on a copy. Riveting, I say!
Today, my friend Erika’s paper, based on her PhD research, was published in the prestigious journal Science!
This is the front page of Science’s website today. That red arrow shows you where the story on Erika’s paper resides!
You may remember Erika from such blog postings as her wedding and several 12Bars of Christmas. But in addition to being a thrower of awesome parties, she’s also a ridiculously good scientist. The significance of being published in Science is, no exaggeration, like winning a gold medal at the Olympics. Seriously. Remember how big a deal it was when Alexandre Bilodeau won that gold medal last year? It’s that big. Seriously.
Also, my friend Linda is a co-author. You may remember Linda from such awesomeness as Team Cupcake and several 12 Barsof Christmas.
So congrats to Erika, Linda and the rest of the co-authors on this ridiculously amazing achievement. And congrats to me on being only one degree of separation (x2) from a publication in Science!
So I was telling someone the other day about that time I got paid $20 to watch porn. For science. I was watching porn for science! Anyway, it got me to thinking: did they ever publish that research? So, being the astute scientist that I am, I searched ye ole PubMed and found this:
You can’t access the full paper without a subscription to the journal/a university library account, but you can read the abstract here.
So now I guess I can say that I’ve been published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine! And here I thought “Bone” would be the dirtiest sounding journal I’d ever be in!
