Future Science OA publishes ‘Early Career Researcher’ special focus issue
Future Science OA (FSOA) would like to take this opportunity to welcome our readers to the Early Career Researcher (ECR) Issue.
The concept of this issue was born from the understanding that the transition from doctoral studies to academic research can be daunting, with many challenges and hurdles in place.
FSOA has a number of initiatives to help support ECRs. It is important for publishers to understand the needs and concerns of ECRs who are set to have a big impact in their field. This special issue includes a range of articles touching on some of the most important topic areas for ECRs including mental health and how it can often be neglected in academia. The issue also features some exciting work led by ECRs.
Guest Editor, Liam Heaney (Loughborough University) comments “I would like to wish all ECRs who are reading this the best of luck for your future and encourage you to stay humble but never give up on your dreams.”
