Work-In-Progress January 2023: Literature Reviews

Have you read so many papers that you can’t see the wood for the trees anymore? Want another pair of eyes to have a look at what you have written? Register for our first Work-In-Progress session in 2022-2023!


The first session will take place in January 2023, and will focus on one of our everyday struggles as PhD researchers and postgraduate students: literature reviews and theoretical chapters.


During these sessions, we read each other's drafts and provide feedback.If you decide to take part in January's Work-In-Progress session, we will need your draft by mid-December 2022, giving other participants time to read it. Don't worry, it doesn't need to be polished!
