Learning and doing research online can be of great value to PhD candidates when possibilities to travel and attend events offline are limited. Such restrictions are obviously present during the Corona pandemic, but many other factors can also make it more practical or even necessary to learn and do research online.
As part of our Training the Trainer innovations, the Erasmus Graduate School for Social Sciences and Humanities (EGSH) organised an online crash course for supervisors about the Shut Up and Write method.
Ethical research review is a very useful way to improve the quality of your research, and this type of review is becoming increasingly important in order to meet the requirements of research integrity codes, legal regulations and policies from funders and publishers. As of 1 January 2021 ethical research review will become mandator at ESSB.
In response to the reality that most doctoral graduates ultimately find employment outside of the academic sector the Erasmus Graduate School of Social Sciences and the Humanities in co-operation with Erasmus University's Alumni Relations Team will run a series of online PhD Alumni dialogues.
