  1. Getting to know each other

    Dear Ina, I am not sure why it is not working, when I click 'here' on the website an email is opened by outlook addressed to Cynthia or Shubha. Perhaps if you try from a desktop or laptop PC? If that does not work either please email me at communication@isbtweb.org and I will be happy to provide you with the email address. Best wishes, Bodine van Wingerden ISBT Central Office
  2. Transfusion Today

    Hi everybody, Please post any inquiries regarding Transfusion Today here. Do you have a suggestion for content? We are always open to your suggestion! Do you have an idea for a nice article from your country or region that you think would be interesting for other members of ISBT to know about?

  4. I had not heard of Mendeley before, I have been using RefWorks myself but found the programme quite confusing and not very userfriendly. I took a quick look at the Mendeley website and it looks very promising, Soumya! (https://www.mendeley.com/) Thank you for suggesting it!
  5. 1) Ensure that there is consistency throughout every aspect of the paper 2) Resolve any statistical issues 3) Optimize the presentation of the tables and figures 4) Double-check that nothing’s in the wrong place or missing Read more: https://www.sciencedocs.com/writing-research-papers/ What have you put on your checklist before you submit your latest research paper? Personally I found referencing software very useful to make sure all references are correct!
  6. Hi Soumya, Happy New Year! We moved your question to the Immunohaematology forum, as this is frequently checked by Immunohaematology professionals who are most likely to be able to help you. Best wishes, Bodine van Wingerden
  7. Hi all, We found this interesting article on sickle cell patients and lowering the rate of pain crises: http://www.jwatch.org/na43049/2016/12/13/prevention-sickle-cell-pain-crises-with-p-selectin Main conclusion: Inhibiting cell adhesion with crizanlizumab was associated with a significantly lower rate of pain crises. What do you think of their findings? Would you consider the P-selectin inhibitor crizanlizumab treatment a sustainable solution?

  9. Tips for presenting your research

    Hi everyone, We figured it might be nice to share some information about an aspect of academia that is probably the biggest insecurity of all of us; presenting.. I found this infographic with some tips, but perhaps you have a good preparation tip to calm the nerves?
  10. Hi everybody, We found this article with some tips on what to look out for before submitting the research to a journal. What do you think of these? Curious to hear from you about other tips?
  11. Posting Tips

    Posting tips 1. Search first: before starting a new thread on a topic that may have been discussed before, browse or search the forums to see if there is already a thread on that topic. Your question may have already been addressed, so you won't have to wait for an answer. For example, if you want to discuss side effects of the drug prednisone, browse or search for threads with the word "prednisone" in the title. A thread you find may answer your question or cover the subject you want to discuss. We may combine threads on the same topic, to make them more useful and easier to find. 2. Posting: you can make a post using either the post reply button or the quote button. Use quote when replying to a specific previous post. Otherwise, use post reply. 3. Double-posting: choose the most appropriate forum when starting a thread. If you have a choice, pick one forum and do not start the same thread more than once. We routinely remove duplicate threads. Choose the most appropriate thread when making a post. If you have a comment that applies to one or more threads, pick one of them. 4. Thread titles: when starting a thread, use a topic that indicates the specific subject. This helps members know if the thread is of interest, and is especially important when other members do a search the forums by thread title. If you choose a poor title for your thread, the administrators may rename it. Examples of good titles: o What are the cellular components of blood? o Tips for reviewing academic articles? Examples of poor titles: o A quick question o Need help
