The 15th Development Dialogue of the International Institute of Social Studies (ISS) is themed "Localizing the 'Global: Global Development and Social Justice in Practice". PhD researchers and practitioners are invited to submit their abstracts before June 17, 2017. This year the conference coincides with the ISS’ 65th birthday celebrations.
Together with the Graduate School, the Erasmus University Library has developed a series of e-modules in 'PhD information skills'. This online portal includes training modules in improving research design, optimising literature search techniques and much more.
The upcoming edition of the Dean's Master Class will focus on the research theme 'The Brain' from three disciplinary angles: Psychology, Philosophy and Neuromarketing. The respective speakers are: Professor Ingmar Franken, Professor Heleen Pott, Professor Ale Smidts.
Every year the Graduate School invites its PhD candidates and recent graduates to submit their work for the "Graduate School Award for PhD Excellence". During a festive award ceremony, Graduate School Dean Professor Liesbet van Zoonen and rector magnificus Huibert Pols announced the winners of the 2016 competition.
This three hour workshop focuses on practical aspects of doing your literature review. After completion you will be able to prepare your literature search, organise your references and creating your own 'research information landscape'. The workshop is specifically designed for first year PhD candidates.
