Abstract

As the profession continues to develop, more midwives are involved in conducting research as well as using it to inform their practice. In reflection of this, the number of midwives working towards a doctorate in the UK is increasing, and has been estimated to stand at around 50 (Sinclair, 2006). Despite this, much research remains unpublished, with findings and lessons not shared with or learned by others. By not exposing their work to rigorous peer review, even the researchers involved may not benefit from what their studies have to offer. The RCM’s Evidence Based Midwifery (EBM) has become a quarterly as part of its endeavour to provide a more regular and effective forum for midwifery research. As such, there is a greater opportunity for midwives to get their papers published and accessed by the College’s 37 500 members, and this article aims to encourage and assist them.
