Event description
FoSS Doctoral Conference Progressing through the PhD: Reflections and Experiences of the Research Process from Proposal to Viva

About this Event

It is a pleasure to invite you to this year’s doctoral conference for the Faculty of Social Sciences. From creating the proposal to defending the Viva, there are many steps involved throughout the PhD process. The pathway through this process is not linear, and there are many stages where you will experience challenges and triumphs. Therefore, based on the broad theme of design and implementation issues relating to the research process, the organisers of this conference welcome those interested in the doctoral research process to attend.

This conference welcomes submissions which focus on all aspects of preparing for and negotiating your research. This may include, but is not limited to, posters and papers on the following themes: reflections on preparing a research proposal, the expectations versus reality of carrying out your plan, ethical challenges, methods selection, negotiating interdisciplinary issues, reflexivity, dealing with imposter syndrome, preparing for the APR or Viva, ensuring impact, broader issues of dissemination, and writing for publication during your PhD.

This is an event organised by students for students which aims to provide an opportunity for Postgraduate Research students to gain experience in presenting short papers or posters on their research projects. This offers an excellent opportunity to present in front of a supportive audience and network with other doctoral students and staff. We strongly encourage Masters students and PGRs from across all disciplines to attend and present. All staff members are welcome to attend, and supervisors of presenting students are expected to be in attendance.

If you are interested in possibly presenting, please submit an abstract of up to 200 words, indicating if the abstract is for a poster or paper. Submissions and enquiries should be sent to FoSSDoctoralConference@stir.ac.uk by the 27th March 2020.
