Episode 51: literature search
Alle researchers need to search for previously published material. You can either do it in a loose fashion, so-called "surfing" for evidence, or you can perform a search systematically, e.g. for a systematic review.

Episode 50: practical data management
There are strict rules about how to handle your data from a research project. You cannot put them on Dropbox or similar web-based repositories and you cannot save them on the hard drive of your personal computer.

Episode 49: Good Clinical Practice
It is mandatory to follow the Good Clinical Practice (GCP) rules for trials involving drugs. This episode will give you the background and the main content of the GCP regulations and what it practically means to you when running the study. It is no way a full description of the GCP concept but will give you the highlights so that you can find further details yourself.

Episode 48: critical phases
There will for certain be critical phases in your research process, This episode will go through the critical phases in the protocol, data acquisition, analysis, manuscript and publication phases. Most problems can be prevented.

Episode 47: write a systemativ review
You do not need to be an expert in the clinical field to write a systematic review. It is a fairly easy process because it follows a specific guideline (the PRISMA guideline), and it is also fairly easy to get it accepted for publication in a journal if you do it the right way. And importantly, you will automatically read the necessary literature in your research field. The only drawback is that you have to invest the necessary time and energy, but that is not really a negative thing. So go ahead and write a systematic review in your field of research.
