Issue 2, 2016

Our second issue for 2016 focusses on promotion/progression and career development. Dr Leonora Risse, RMIT University, provides some of the lessons she has learned from being a long distance runner; a sport where tenaciousness and perseverance are hallmarks. Dr Nichola Robertson, Deakin University, tells us about achieving balance after returning from maternity leave and Professor Lisa Farrell, RMIT University, talks about the policies and procedures related to maternity leave. I offer some food for thought about crafting a narrative for the whole of your research work, rather than thinking about it one project at a time, and what is meant by research impact.
