Jan: 366 papers in 2016

As one of my 2016 scientific resolutions I will be reading one paper every day of the year and posting each here (hopefully) daily. Along with me, Natalie Matosin, Martin Engel and Lauren Drogos will also be doing the same and likewise posting each paper on their respective blogs. You can also follow the three of us and the others who are joining us using the tag #366papers on twitter.

Also find Dr Lauren Drogos here, Dr Natalie Matosin here and find Dr Martin Engel here.
