I need someone with a science - preferably biology, background who can search academic papers for me to create citations for a human biology research project. Access to a university database would be useful but not essential. Skills are the ability to actually understand the content of the papers. These will be medical research as well as philosophy and psychology. Ideally someone with experience of creating bibliographies is what I'm looking for. My research is novel and looks at the way consciousness affects the functioning of human biology. In particular metabolism. The research doesn't attempt to explain how this effect occurs but rather what targets can be approached to effect maximum benefits on weight loss goals. The research is completed and I am now documenting it.
