Resources for PhD students

Research training for doctoral students 

In my previous job I was a core trainer for the Faculty of Humanities Postgraduate Research Training Programme at the University of Southampton. I ran sessions on a variety of topics including:

  • Turning a PhD chapter into an article
  • Writing academic book reviews.
  • Conference organisation
  • Giving a research paper at a conference
  • Research ethics
  • Writing for funding and employability.
  • Preparing for the PhD viva

Most of my PowerPoint Presentations and handouts can be freely downloaded from the Humbox as Open Educational Resources. I have made them available under a Creative Commons license meaning that people are free to use them and change them in any way they wish. As a word of caution I do use them in a face-to-face context so they may not necessarily work well as stand alone resources.

Other websites (I'm not responsible for any of these external links).

PhD2Published Lots of useful  insights and advice about publishing for the first time.

BeyondthePhD A website with lots of resources to help PhD students with careers, both inside and outside academia.
