Back in Beijing

img_4487I have now been back in China for a few days following my thoroughly enjoyable trip to Japan. We took in the National Museum of Science in Tokyo, the Fukui Prefectural Dinosaur Museum and the Hayashibara Museum, Okayama, as well as the amazing Osaka Aquarium and the Ueno Zoo in Tokyo. As I have already mentioned on the Musings, my return has plunged me into a maelstrom of deadlines, e-mails and unfinished projects that I want / have to clear out before the end of the month. There will still be lots of regular posts on here as I do have a large backlog of unpublished pieces, but those promised pieces on the various museums and institutions that made up the trip might take a while to produce. Coming up though, expect my thoughts on peer review, ‘experts’,  a big new ‘how to’ series for young researchers, and the EAVP.

In the meantime, I do want to publicly express my thanks to those who helped organise, arrange and fund my visit, and especially my Japanese colleagues who provided such hospitality and generosity of time and material and I hope that it will spawn many future collaborations (and indeed has already started a couple of new projects). Pictured are myself and Corwin Sullivan in the collections room in Fukui, going over bits of Fukuiraptor and with a mount of Gallimimus In the background. (Image courtesy of Masateru Shibata).
