This is difficult as universities will have set requirements. Conference reports editorials and book reviews help along with membership in an editorial board of a journal. I think a passion for your area of work means scholarship comes naturally. Beware of burning out though..

I have mixed short-term and long-term research/writing projects to help sustain momentum. It sounds like that is what you are suggesting. Passion does allow for a natural flow. I guess it requires continuous reflection on what projects to invest in to avoid burn out. There is only so much time. I am starting to move more the direction of focusing on fewer projects to ensure the highest quality. Cheers!

Scholarship productivity can be maintained by-
1. sharing research ideas with different scientists, collaborating them on the web or working with them
2. working on evidence-based subjects or other research subjects but with novelty and sharing views with other scientists.
Collaboration and sharing are fundamental to keep the flow of ideas.

For sure! I like how you noted the importance of connecting with different scientists, including working with others via the internet. It is easy to lose creative connection with the flow of ideas without making an effort to continuously seek new information and share in the process. Thanks for posting.

We should follow successful planing, with regular strategies to mainta scholarship productivity. We kindly advice several strategies and some of the
strategies currently being developed and implemented which include:
• Scholarship website for collaboration, dissemination and peer review of works and ideas-
in-progress
• Scholarship mentoring for faculty
• Web-based venues for dissemination of scholarship (Digital Media Library)
• Grant proposal and scholarly writing workshops; identification of funding sources
• Creating College Summer Mini-Grants for Scholarship
• College Scholarship Symposia or Colloquia for Ideas and Work-in-progress
These ideas will be discussed more and more.....

It sounds like you are saying the process of disseminating research and receiving feedback (which may include funding) are means of sustaining your research momentum. Thank you for your ideas.

1. search for collaborators for research projects;
2. add co-PI or being added as a co-PI in grant applications;
3. always develop new projects with the newest technology, working closely with the industrial companies.

The main target is to keep communications and scientific cooperation with other scholars with different universities.

Yes, I think there is a synergy that occurs in working with professionals across universities as well as across disciplines and countries even.

Collaborate as much as possible. Different scientists can bring a constant flow of fresh ideas and keep one another motivated. Always make sure you're not the brightest person in the room.

Good question, It is easy to give suggestions and much more difficult for one to put them into practice so i will come from a practical point of view:
1. Make friends- well to find collaborators people have to trust you, to trust you they have to know you, to know you they have to have interacted with you somehow. Try attending conferences because you will find friends there.
2. Be a doer, I mean be productive yourself and at all times. There is no time for not to be productive. Keep researching and writing and if you have no research to publish then write view points, literature reviews etc. Do not procrastinate and do not wait to write that Nobel prize winning article because you are not Albert Einstein.

I could go on but that wouldn't be very productive on my part, so hope that helps.

Our patients are the greatest source of Expertise and knowledge. What we taught from our patients via proper clinical documentation is not available in the classical textbooks.
