The idea of writing for publication may seem daunting at first, but it will be worth the effort and there are different ways to get started.
Writing a book review is one way. You could also write up a literature review without getting the same approvals that you need for other types of research. Service evaluations, although they need to be registered with our Research & Development Department, similarly, do not need further approval for you to be able to publish. What are you waiting for?!
Don’t forget that you do need to ensure that anything that could identify an individual would need appropriate consent and permissions.
