Thank you for your interest in this article. This is, as you have obviously noticed, not the text for
which you were searching. The reason for this is that I am ‘not allowed’ to share the published
article through this channel (ResearchGate, Academia etc.).
Scientists publish their work in journals, but in doing so hand over the copyright of their work to the
publishing house (in the majority of cases). Many publishers have stated that, by and large, the
sharing of published articles on websites such as ResearchGate is an infringement of this copyright.
There are a few other avenues in which an author may share his or her article which varies
depending on the publishing house. I have chosen to host my articles on my website in a password
protected system (this is in line with the majority of publisher agreements with authors).
My articles are available from the link below (and, just maybe, so is the password )
Please feel free to email me with any questions you might have on the content.
If, like me, you are concerned about the stranglehold that publishers hold over science, please
consider using PeerJ for your future publications (www. PeerJ.com). Note that I am not affiliated
with PeerJ other than having author and reviewer accounts – it is simply an amazing publishing
model in which our hard work is accessible to all (without draining our limited research accounts).
