    If you're thinking of posting here, please title your thread according to the following format:

    Study title (year) first author

    Add an 'et al' if there is more than one author.

    Example:

    Predicting personality traits from resting-state fMRI (2017) Dubois et al

    Where the title, together with author and year, would exceed the S4ME character limit for a thread title, just use the first part of the title and add ... to indicate it is abbreviated, followed by the year and author.

    Add more authors if you want to highlight a particular author that isn't the first author.

    Where a title is not self explanatory, add a short comment after the title, year and author, for example you might add [research includes ME], [research on rats], or [hypothesis article].

    Please do not add a personal opinion about the paper to the title, for example do not add 'more BPS rubbish' to the title.

    This helps people to find the discussion if they Google the article, and also helps the S4ME librarians to collate key research pieces.

    Thanks,

    Woolie
