Take control of your PhD journey: From (p)reflection to publishing

Take control of your PhD journey: From (p)reflection to publishing

When: The end of October/beginning of November

Where: UiT

Writing a thesis is a long and winding journey. It requires competencies beyond that of your chosen topic. You must be able to find the best literature for your project, review the existing literature, use this literature according to academic norms and then publish your findings in the best possible channels.

The University Library has created a comprehensive course consisting of four independent seminars, specifically targeted at PhD students. You can take all four of them, or pick just one or two if you are already familiar the subject, or if you’re too busy just now.
