Episode 17 | Reflections on Publishing Research

In the Clinic with Camille

a podcast for integrative practitioners


Listen to the Episode:


The trials and tribulations of survey research.

A paper that I've been working on with a team of other folks was published in the Journal of the American College of Nutrition

It took about 2.5 years from the start of the project to publication, and it's been a wild ride.

In today's episode, I share some of what went into the research and publication process, and a few things that I learned along the way. 

I hope you enjoy these reflections on what goes into a seemingly simple - and imperfect - publication & that hearing more about this process helps you to have a deeper appreciation for the studies you use in your work.

Next week, I'll be back to more clinical topics :).

Accessing the paper

Sadly, it's not open-access. I talk about this a bit in the episode. I do have 50 free e-copies to give out, so please do reach out if you'd like one of them. If you have institutional access to the JACN, here is the citation:
