If you are an S4BE Contributor:

Being an S4BE Contributor means you irregularly blog for us (don’t worry you are still a very key part of our network!). All students start as Contributors on S4BE and when you’ve published your first blog, you are automatically given your own page on the website, i.e. Alice’s page: http://www.students4bestevidence.net/author/alicebuchan/. The URL should look as follows:

www.students4bestevidence.net/author/firstnamesurname

You can cite this page in your CV, see this example using Alice Buchan’s S4BE page:

Buchan, A. S4BE Contributor: Alice Buchan. Students 4 Best Evidence: a network for students interested in evidence-based health care. Students4bestevidence.net. Web. Accessed 3 September, 2014. http://www.students4bestevidence.net/author/alicebuchan/

If you are an S4BE Pioneer:

S4BE Pioneer’s are students who blog at least once a month, for four consecutive months or more. Becoming an S4BE Pioneer means you can receive a certificate stating your time as a Pioneer. This is signed by Martin Burton, Director of the UK Cochrane Centre, S4BE’s supporting partner organisation. This is on top of automatically receiving your webpage that you can cite, as mentioned above.

If you are an S4BE Pioneer and would like to receive your certificate, please email Emma Carter at general@students4bestevidence.net.
