Feedback, Have Your Say. (by Diego Fdez-Sevilla, PhD.)
(New posts can be found below this one)
I have been sharing my take over environmental and cultural synergies in my blog for some time already. I have also shared my work over LinkedIn.
In a first instance I added my blog’s publications into several LinkedIn groups which incorporated all type of profiles looking for interaction. I joined 50 groups and I shared regularly my blog into some of them, from highly specialised in scientific profiles like AGU or NOAA, to more open backgrounds like “Environmental Impact Assessment”, “EHS Environmental Issues” or “Landscape ecology and planning”. All related with environmental aspects and policies.
When in 2014 I published my new approach and theories over climatic and atmospheric dynamics I received silence as response. Nobody denied its validity and neither gave credit. In the group AGU, only two person offered feedback (follow link if you are a member of the group). One supporting my assessments and another person moving out of topic. In this group I had an experience which made me rethink how to interact in this platform. When I tried to reclaim the focus of attention over discussing the validity of my assessments, he replied that I sounded as if I was trying to sell my ideas.
At that point I realised that I did not want to give such impression. I should not be the one adding my views into groups, giving the impression of being selling a product. My work, my point of view and my saying over matters, is what I believe worthy to incorporate in the state of knowledge. And I work towards finding ways to express and support arguments based on scientific rigour and critical thinking.
So in order to enhance credibility over number of visits, I decided to keep my publications into my blog and my network at LinkedIn, and let others to decide when or what to share at LinkedIn groups.
However, I see at linkedIn that many comments are lost over time so I would like for you to consider making your say adding your comments also on this blog. That would be permanent and open for other visitors to interact over time. And any other person adding more comments will be communicated to your email address.
The potential from this blog lies on making it an active environment open for discussion and interaction. The only requirements to leave a comment are a name and an email address, which are used to validate authors and avoid spammers. There is no need to be a blogger or to manage a website.
I want to use this blog to increase the level of exposure of my research and enhance discussion in a multidisciplinary and open review in order to scrutinise its validity throughout the interaction between proactive thinkers.
The only way to overcome limitations in order to address environmental issues of global nature is by joining the potential of different mind sets, knowledge and points of view. Here I offer my effort to join others on what it should be a team’s effort.
So I treat every contribution as positive, either in agreement or disagreement, as long as it is aimed to be constructive .
Having feedback is always appreciated, it enhance the value of any work and being honest, it also would help me, and my visibility, towards growing professionally. Ultimately, growing professionally would mean that I would have the opportunity to explore further the validity for those arguments which I offer throughout my research. Under my point of view, the relevance behind assessing the contribution of an idea, or an approach/method is by following the question: does it work explaining actual developments?
Why do I not follow academic protocols and publish in peer review journals?
First, because I am not a member of an University or technical Institution. Without the support of an Institution it is very difficult to get even considered for review.
Second, I don´t apply the technicalities which most scientific journals require. And I do it consciously in order to make my research accessible to a multidisciplinary audience with the aim to gather together points of view and the interaction from all members of different disciplines. It is about identifying synergies between fields what I consider to be the ultimately goal in my research.
A team´s effort
The sources of visits coming through this blog are covering the whole globe in location and ranging from outside academic/research networks to Universities, National Administrations and Research Units, Centres, Networks.
Since we both are interested in the same subjects, I would appreciate that you leave a comment or use attribution to my work when you find it influencing yours. Either through inspiration from the analogies that I apply on conceptual discussions, the data that I apply, an innovative approach or methodology, and the ideas and conclusions exposed. It is sad seeing work being produced in locations by institutions tracked from your visits since 2013, mimicking parts of my own work without recognition.
So please, get involved in my effort and join me, use this space to have your say on those issues which matter to you and join me in what it is a team’s effort.
Since I don´t know all about everything, it is about using feedback to just apply properly everything that I know.

Too Close for Comfort
The following are links to publications made by third parties showing to share too many relevant similarities with previous publications from my work, without any type of acknowledgement. I leave them for you to judge (Link1 (see specific section at the bottom), link2 and link3 (read full and see comments)). When was the first time that you have seen research on climate change talking about “processes with associated energy propagation”…
Since October 2013 I have been studying the behaviour of the Polar Jet Stream and the weather events associated as well as the implications derived into atmospheric dynamics and environmental synergies.
Many of the atmospheric configurations and weather and climate events we see these days are very similar with the progression followed since 2013. Please take a look at posts addressing those events from previous publications in this blog or look at the categories in the top menu. Also at research-gate. Feedback is always welcomed either in this blog or at my email (d.fdezsevilla(at)gmail.com). All my work is part of my Intellectual Portfolio, registered under Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial 4.0 International License, WordPress.com license and it is being implemented at my profile in researchgate. I will fight for its recognition in case of misuse.
