This is an example from the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine. I work on a measurement, learning and evaluation research project, looking at primary health care-level innovations for maternal and newborn health. The project works in three LIMC settings and some members of the team are based there. Once a week, I search various relevant journals and academic databases and compile a list of recently published journal papers, together with abstracts and links to full texts where available, and share it with my colleagues. I probably don’t capture everything, but these lists are appreciated by my colleagues.
Once a month, I distil these lists down to those papers with LSHTM co-authors and they are shared through the MARCH Centre, (a cross-faculty group linking staff and students who are interested in maternal, adolescent, reproductive and child health), to help publicise colleagues’ research within the school.
