User talk:Sara Fletcher
Welcome to the Citizendium! We hope you will contribute boldly and well. Here are pointers for a quick start. You'll probably want to know how to get started as an author. Just look at CZ:Getting Started for other helpful "startup" links, and CZ:Home for the top menu of community pages. Be sure to stay abreast of events via the Citizendium-L (broadcast) mailing list (do join!) and the blog. Please also join the workgroup mailing list(s) that concern your particular interests. You can test out editing in the sandbox if you'd like. If you need help to get going, the forums is one option. That's also where we discuss policy and proposals. You can ask any constable for help, too. Me, for instance! Just put a note on their "talk" page. Again, welcome and have fun! D. Matt Innis 23:51, 29 October 2008 (UTC)
Some ideas for contributions
Hi Sara, welcome aboard CZ. Matt has already given you some hints as to how things work here in general, and I wish to add some more practical hints on what possibilities you have to contribute. For a start, I just took some of the keywords from the information you supplied upon registration, and display below the current state of related CZ articles (for icon documentation, see Template:Rpl/Doc):
- Synchrotron: Add brief definition or description
- Synchrotron radiation: Add brief definition or description
- X-ray: An ionizing type of electromagnetic radiation whose absorption or diffraction often used for structural investigations of matter.
- Computed tomography: An imaging technique that computes three-dimensional representations of an object from a series of two-dimensional x-ray images.
- Neutron tomography: Add brief definition or description
- Science journalism: A branch of journalism dedicated to reporting about scientific research.
- Physics: The study of forces and energies in space and time.
- Particle physics: Branch of physics that deals with subatomic particles.
Furthermore, in case you are involved in homework assignments, please consider doing so via Eduzendium articles.
Finally, you can help future newcomers by giving your feedback on the above suggestions. To do so, please leave a note on my talk page.
Looking forward to fruitful collaborative editing, Daniel Mietchen 22:06, 1 November 2008 (UTC)
