'Sharing strategies for keeping up to date with research in your field'


#phdchat tweet log - 15th August 2012


@NSRiazat - Welcome to #phdchat - the topic for tonight is 'sharing strategies for keeping up to date with research in your field' #Phd #highered

@NSRiazat - @coocho - can add 'co-authoring' as a topic for next poll. #phdchat

@NSRiazat - Anyone else use Zetoc alerts to keep up to date with journals? #phdchat

@MarkRTurner - @NSRiazat what is Zetoc? #phdchat

@NSRiazat - Conferences and networking with academics in a similar field to yours brings both positives and negatives. #phdchat

@ICTwitz - @NSRiazat Hello Nasima. No, i don't use Zetoc. Never heard of it. Any good #phdchat

@NSRiazat - @MarkRTurner ~ Zetoc Alerts is a database which emails you a contents page of the journals specified when they are released. #phdchat

@SarahAlden1 - @NSRiazat I tend to use Zetoc as my main research tool, as find it really easy to use and more comprehensive than the uni's own #phdchat

@Protohedgehog - How I keep up with Palaeo research: RSS feeds for journals, including key word searches, and Twitter of course! #phdchat Blogs are great too

@NSRiazat - @MarkRTurner ~ saves you having to look each one up individually. Contents page straight to your email inbox. Think its UK only? #phdchat

@ICTwitz - @NSRiazat @SarahAlden1 I must admit, I use Google Scholar, but it falls down on up-to-date articles #phdchat

@NSRiazat - @ICTwitz ~ Hi. :-) Zetoc is wonderful for keeping you up to date with journals and new articles as they are published. #phdchat

@NSRiazat - @SarahAlden1 ~ I also prefer Zetoc - can then download anything that looks of interest from databses. #phdchat

@ICTwitz - I have now got zetoc web page open to look at after this chat #phdchat

@Protohedgehog - Getting the abstracts for relevant conferences, globally, is great too. Can ID future collaborators, and cheaper than attending! #phdchat

@NSRiazat - @Protohedgehog ~ liking idea of blogs for keeping up to date with research. Recommend any good ones? #phdchat

@sbrookswilson - @Protohedgehog #phdchat RSS feeds are great - very quick and easy to manage info, shame many of those issuing the info don't utilise!

@NSRiazat - @ICTwitz ~ I also use Google Scholar but use databases as well as the obscure articles are often hidden in the databases. :-) #phdchat

@ICTwitz - There always is the issue of getting too much research for your project. Sometime you just have to stop searching and start writing #phdchat

@NSRiazat - @erinlpc ~ yes think it is UK only which is a shame as is it is a good resource. Can university subscribe to it? #phdchat

@NSRiazat - @ICTwitz ~ let me know what you think of it. #phdchat

@SarahAlden1 - @sbrookswilson @Protohedgehog yes, I like RSS feeds too, but seem to have so many of them (all seem relevant!) #phdchat

@NSRiazat - @NSRiazat ~ conference papers are a gold mine of information too...if only to follow up references if not relevant material. #phdchat

@Protohedgehog - @NSRiazat Oh goodness, there's so many out there! Only ones I can recommend are Palaeo and Geology, not general science interest #phdchat

@erinlpc - I find a lot of interesting things via blogs, twitter, google reader etc. but feel like I'm still missing a lot #phdchat

@ICTwitz - My research area are too wide, so I need to explore a wide range of journals, which feels like a never-ending process! #phdchat

@strictlykaren - @NSRiazat I hadn't heard of zetoc but looks very useful, I just sign up for journal content alerts & do reg searches on databases #phdchat

@erinlpc - @NSRiazat not sure, might have to look into it a bit more. If it's half as good as everyone says it it, it's worth it #phdchat

@BSAPGForum - #phdchat I always try to keep in email contact with recently published academics close to my field. e.g. forthcoming publications.

@ICTwitz - @erinlpc Indeed, that's one of the main challenges #phdchat

@Protohedgehog - @SarahAlden1 @sbrookswilson Best thing to do is set them to update just once a day, saves time by scanning all at once #PhDchat

@NSRiazat - Link to Zetoc Alerts ~ http://t.co/lgaLtJ2T #phdchat

@erinlpc - This: @NSRiazat ~ conference papers are a gold mine of information too...if only to follow up references if not relevant material. #phdchat

@NSRiazat - @SarahAlden1 ~ recently been getting to grips with databases in my area of educational leadership. Like ERIC and JSTOR #phdchat

@Comprof1 - @NSRiazat @ICTwitz Anyone else have a problem finding/accessing google scholar? #phdchat

@NSRiazat - @Protohedgehog ~ haven't considered blogs as way of keeping up to date with field. I tend to focus on journals and books - my bad. #phdchat

@Comprof1 - @NSRiazat @ICTwitz Also need to look out of your field.sometimes going to conferences outside of field will give diff perspective. #phdchat

@NSRiazat - @erinlpc ~ definitely recommend it. I work full time and Zetoc was invaluable for email alerts for journal content pages. #phdchat

@ICTwitz - @Comprof1 @NSRiazat Not really. Sometimes I refine the search. Problem sometimes is finding journal which uni does not subscribe! #phdchat

@SarahAlden1 - fairly new to twitter, but have to say its a great way to keep up to date with new areas of research in my topics of interest #phdchat

@npmaven - Appears in my menu. URL http://t.co/YU9dn7vy RT @Comprof1: @NSRiazat @ICTwitz Anyone else have a problem accessing google scholar? #phdchat

@NSRiazat - @erinlpc ~ hvaing said that I still do an occasional trawl of databases regularly as a backup. #phdchat

@SarahAlden1 - @NSRiazat I have looked at these, but don't really utilise them - maybe I will have another look! #phdchat

@Comprof1 - @ICTwitz @NSRiazat I'm lucky we have a good interlibrary loan system. #phdchat

@Protohedgehog - @NSRiazat They're a secondary source. Analytical, events, reviews, blending of opinions and discussion. All compliments primary lit #PhDchat

@MarkRTurner - @erinlpc @NSRiazat Thank Erin. Have looked into it now, as i'm based on UK I am able to gain access. #Zetoc #phdchat

@ICTwitz - @Comprof1 @NSRiazat Conferences are mainly off my radar! Is there a web link for future events? #phdchat

@Comprof1 - @npmaven @NSRiazat @ICTwitz This year disappeared from menu. Now have to go through "other" and "search tools" to find it. #phdchat

@NSRiazat - @BSAPGForum ~ contacting authors directly = brilliant to keep up to date. Professor sent me an article I couldn't locate via email. #phdchat

@erinlpc - @NSRiazat I need to work on my database skills. Just don't seem to find the relevant articles as easily as I should... #phdchat

@sbrookswilson - @SarahAlden1 totally agree with use of twitter as information management tool #phdchat

@Protohedgehog - @sbrookswilson @sarahalden1 Yep. The program RSS Reader is getting old, but still does the job pretty well. Runs in the background #PhDchat

@DrJeremySegrott - @Comprof1 @NSRiazat @ICTwitz #phdchat - it is a bit tucked out of the way under 'even more', isn't it?

@NSRiazat - @Comprof1 ~ not had problems with Google Scholar recently. #phdchat

@ICTwitz - @NSRiazat @BSAPGForum I always feel cheeky to contact authors directly. #phdchat

@jenkidd - Most academics won't mind you emailing to ask for copies of conference papers so you don't always have to wait for publication #phdchat

@Comprof1 - @ICTwitz @NSRiazat I keep up on various organizations that will have call for papers/special journal topics. My expertise is broad #phdchat

@NSRiazat - @ICTwitz ~ yes getting hold of articles the uni doesn't subscribe to are a nightmare but OU has a good set of databases. #phdchat

@Comprof1 - @DrJeremySegrott @NSRiazat @ICTwitz It used to be right at the top of the search (search for more in "scholar") Y did they change? #phdchat

@Protohedgehog - Tip: find out who tweets about new articles in your field, and set up alerts (eg text) - you never miss one that way, and no hassle #phdchat

@NSRiazat - @Comprof1 @ICTWitz ~ interlibrary loans = fantastic throughout PhD. Uni delivers via post books/articles/conference papers. #phdchat

@Comprof1 - @ICTwitz @NSRiazat @BSAPGForum Don't. I used to do it as a grad assistant & have had some contact me. The worst they do is not ans. #phdchat

@AmandaMichelle - oh! #phdchat: i think this might be mainly for the US folks... how do you vet your research assistantships? like, what should i ask?

@jenkidd - Seek out your subject librarian and make friends! #phdchat

@DrJeremySegrott - @Comprof1 @NSRiazat @ICTwitz #phdchat - I guess you could bookmark it - I really should do that.

@AmandaMichelle - crap, am i interrupting the regular #phdchat session? i'm sorry. this is why i shouldn't tweet from work.

@ICTwitz - @Protohedgehog Indeed, and it would be nice if those tweeters got involved with this chat to share their work #phdchat

@erinlpc - Has anyone had success with the new google scholar feature that recommends relevant articles for you? http://t.co/jZcJwewI #phdchat

@NSRiazat - @Protohedgehog ~ using grounded theory - using literature (+ conference papers) as secondary data to compliment primary. #phdchat

@ICTwitz - Any online articles (web-based, not pdf) I now save to Pocket, which is a nice app for Android/iPad etc. #phdchat

@jenkidd - remember they need your citations! @ICTwitz: @NSRiazat @BSAPGForum I always feel cheeky to contact authors directly. #phdchat

@NSRiazat - @Protohedgehog ~ particularly like conference papers as some have given me a different perspective on some of my concepts. #phdchat

@ICTwitz - @erinlpc Ooh, brilliant. Looks like a new feature! Thanks for sharing :-D #phdchat

@ICTwitz - @jenkidd Valid point. #phdchat

@Comprof1 - @AmandaMichelle Do you mean choosing something you can use later? My assist. was nothing to do w/ my interests. Learned alot, tho #phdchat

@NSRiazat - @MarkRTurner ~ I'm sure you'll find Zetoc a useful resource. :-) #phdchat

@Comprof1 - @NSRiazat @Protohedgehog Many conferences have papers available online (some for free, some you can get thru library) #phdchat

@almutei - @erinlpc Kind of, one of the recommended articles I had already found and downloaded. #phdchat

@erinlpc - @ICTwitz looks like it will be useful once you have a portfolio. As a new student it isn't particularly useful as I've got nothin' #phdchat

@NSRiazat - @ICTwitz ~ BERA (British Ed Research Assocn) & BELMAS (British Education Ldershp and Mgt Society) do conferences in my field. #phdchat

@Comprof1 - #phdchat Our school now used Proquest for dissertations and they will make them searchable on Google. Dissertations are untapped resource

@NSRiazat - @ICTwitz ~ not sire where a general list of conferences would be published. Sometimes they appear on #phdchat thread. #phdchat

@sbrookswilson - @ICTwitz brilliant tip. Sadly only avail for those on Apple with iOS5 :-( #phdchat

@almutei - @NSRiazat @MarkRTurner Ooh! Just saw that Zetoc also has RSS feeds for its journals. Easier than finding it on journal site. #phdchat

@NSRiazat - @erinlpc # I track down a relevant articles and search for 'similar articles' or citations. #phdchat

@NSRiazat - @erinlpc ~ but it took me a while to get used to using databases - they are very 'precise' in their search terms/language #phdchat

@strictlykaren - @ICTwitz don't feel cheeky, I have done this a few times and always found the authors to be more than happy to send me their work #phdchat

@ICTwitz - @NSRiazat @MarkRTurner ~ Ooh, just spotted that Zetoc does RSS alerts. I'm still a dinosaur, like RSS alerts - Easily happy :-D #phdchat

@Comprof1 - @erinlpc @ICTwitz I wish someone had told me at beginning to find something to save & label references to access later #phdchat

@AmandaMichelle - @comprof1 i'm thinking more along the lines of choosing a good partnership, what to consider in terms of advisors, etc. #phdchat

@NSRiazat - @NSRiazat ~ have to remember not to allow all the 'new' info from keeping up to date to detract me from the focus of my RQ's. #phdchat

@Gtrombone - #phdchat Try to stay in touch with interdisciplinary researchers, related to your field, many things overlap

@almutei - @ICTwitz @NSRiazat @MarkRTurner I'm not the only one! :) #phdchat

@NSRiazat - Has anyone had formal database search training as part of PhD? #phdchat

@ICTwitz - @sbrookswilson Ooh, sorry #phdchat

@erinlpc - @Comprof1 @ICTwitz Yeah, I use Mendeley to track everything and annotate. Seems good so far #phdchat

@NSRiazat - Spent an afternoon with an academic librarian in my field at Uni library - they really know their stuff in terms of key authors etc #phdchat

@Comprof1 - Another good way to keep up is find authors & go to their websites. Usually have their current research & conferences. #phdchat

@strictlykaren - @NSRiazat Not as part of phd but spent time with subject librarian as need to conduct a fairly systematic approach to search #phdchat

@almutei - @erinlpc Get some articles from supervisor. Work backwards through citations, then search for new papers by important authors. #phdchat

@Comprof1 - @NSRiazat @ICTwitz Best way is ask those in dept. Also, id conference papers & go to conference website. #phdchat

@NSRiazat - @ICTwitz @MarkRTurner ~ excellent. :-) #phdchat

@almutei - @NSRiazat There was something way back in the beginning ... #phdchat

@Comprof1 - @NSRiazat I found it was easier to start with Google Scholar, then go to library (or online). #phdchat

@erinlpc - @almutei that's what I'm working on - I need to settle on one stream and focus on it for awhile #phdchat

@SarahAlden1 - when I find a particularly relevant article I go through the bibliography with a fine tooth comb to see what they are reading #phdchat

@NSRiazat - @ICTwitz @BSAPGForum ~ Apparently they don't mind talking about their research. Guess they can only say no. #phdchat

@NSRiazat - Are there any authors around tonight - how do you feel about being contacted directly about your work? #phdchat

@NSRiazat - @DrJeremySegrott @Comprof1 @ICTwitz ~ duly bookmarked. :-)n #phdchat

@Comprof1 - @SarahAlden1 I do that also. I also id journals & look thru id journals for relevant articles (using database search) #phdchat

@tressiemcphd - ... everyone cannot move freely about this country. http://t.co/CIxN7XL3 #phdchat #highered

@NSRiazat - @Comprof1 # have to say a general literature search on Google scholar has always been my starting point - then databases. #phdchat

@strictlykaren - @NSRiazat "remember not to allow all the new info from keeping up to date to detract me from the focus of my RQs" > good point #phdchat

@Comprof1 - @NSRiazat I've had some people contact. The only problem sometimes is copyright by journals. I usually give them my final draft #phdchat

@Protohedgehog - @jenkidd @ictwitz @nsriazat @bsapgforum Chances are you'll have similar interests too. Can chat about more than just the article #PhDchat

@Donna_Peach - I use http://t.co/ayHNE9wH & relevant journals feed their latest publications via email, also good place to link with researchers #phdchat

@NSRiazat - @strictlykaren ~ as @lizith said last week - academic librarians are the absolute unsung heroes of university libraries. #phdchat

@strictlykaren - @NSRiazat have been contacted a few times and always send my work out although most is freely available thro databases #phdchat

@almutei - @NSRiazat If possible, always make a preprint available. Such as through http://t.co/G8K4Gp7V (and link to it on website) #phdchat

@sbrookswilson - @strictlykaren @nsriazat - hear hear! #phdchat

@strictlykaren - @NSRiazat: "academic librarians are the absolute unsung heroes of university libraries." > absolutely, will get an acknowledgement #phdchat

@Comprof1 - @Protohedgehog @jenkidd @ictwitz @nsriazat @bsapgforum Networking is always useful. Speak to others about your research #phdchat

@NSRiazat - @almutei ~ it came a bit too early for me in the first year. I needed the database search session in Yr 2/3 mainly when writing up. #phdchat

@NSRiazat - @SarahAlden1 ~ that's a great technique to unearth useful material which may otherwise have not been located. #phdchat

@ICTwitz - Sorry, was just busy following #phdchat folks :-D

@jonnymccormick - I've just updated my blog with 'Learning from a Literature Review'. #PhD #phdchat #phdadvice

@strictlykaren - Have to say, I have got many useful articles thro #phdchat folk, often journal I'd never heard of #phdchat

@jonnymccormick - I've just updated my blog with 'Learning from a Literature Review'. https://t.co/Fsnh0I4H #PhD #phdchat #phdadvice

@ICTwitz - Perhaps we should have a future session/s allowing people to talk about their individual fields? @NSRiazat ? #phdchat

@ai1sa - Ive also used librarything and digolet and http://t.co/lYVHTDRS to see the what the people i read are reading or following #phdchat

@leahmacvie - I'm late for #phdchat, what's the topic?

@jenkidd - @Protohedgehog @ictwitz @nsriazat @bsapgforum good point about shared interests. Authors also need contacts/resources to tap into #PhDchat

@SarahAlden1 - @Comprof1 yes, I do that do, usually end up with so many articles - its like a snowball effect! #phdchat

@strictlykaren - @leahmacvie Keeping up to date with research publications in your field #phdchat

@NSRiazat - @ICTwitz ~ great idea - will add to #phdchat poll for next time. #phdchat

@Comprof1 - @leahmacvie How do you keep up with research/resources in your field? #phdchat

@ewel83 - For some reason writing is particularly difficult today #phdchat #dissertation #linguistics

@moorejh - #research #academia #writing #scichat #phdchat #phdadvice #edchat #science RT @sciam Scientists as writers http://t.co/H6wkGG0A

@NSRiazat - @leahmacvie - tonight #phdchat is about strategies for keeping up to date in your field. #phdchat

@leahmacvie - Thx! RT @strictlykaren: @leahmacvie Keeping up to date with research publications in your field #phdchat

@SarahAlden1 - @NSRiazat yes, I always manage to find something that I feel I should have located before! (but somehow didn't find it!) #phdchat

@ICTwitz - @ewel83 Whereas procrastination is easy? ;0) #phdchat

@leahmacvie - I'm sure it's been mentioned-I use Twitter to monitor discussions in my field. It's not for every field, but mine is open learning. #phdchat

@leahmacvie - Twitter helps to link to me to blogs and experts in my field- it's a dynamic tool. #phdchat

@Comprof1 - @SarahAlden1 @NSRiazat One overlooked resource are professors in at ur uni. Sometimes others diff dept have overlap research. #phdchat

@the15hfloor - I like google reader and RSS feeds from journals / research orgs / press. I also set up alert search terms on google scholar #phdchat

@leahmacvie - I'm also using Evernote to track all of the blogs and sites I come across through Twitter. #phdchat

@NSRiazat - @ankleskater ~ we had it also as part of MA programme - I got best databases to use from my former uni not current one. #phdchat

@Comprof1 - Anyone have a strategy for finding hashtags in your field? This has been problem with twitter. #phdchat

@leahmacvie - Serendipity RT @sarahalden1: @NSRiazat yes, I always manage to find something that I feel I should have located before! #phdchat

@Protohedgehog - One thing we're overlooking is using your own research to attract people in your field - yell about your research to the world! #PhDchat

@Comprof1 - I also look for research websites & follow on twitter. #phdchat

@SarahAlden1 - @ai1sa I have not heard of digolet, will check this out #phdchat

@Comprof1 - @Protohedgehog Where and How? #phdchat

@almutei - @the15hfloor Did you see earlier that Zetoc has RSS feeds for journals? I'll check that out soon. #phdchat

@strictlykaren - @leahmacvie I had been using delicious but have Evernote too, do you think it is better #phdchat

@NSRiazat - Keeping up to date and revisiting sections already written is important as socio-political changes occurred during life of my PhD. #phdchat

@almutei - @Comprof1 @Protohedgehog Here! #phdchat

@ai1sa - @SarahAlden1 digolet & delicious: useful for bookmarking websites, newspaper articles, also lets you search others bookmarks #phdchat

@the15hfloor - But you can't beat an appointment with your subject specialist librarian. Had some fab training from my university library @dulib #phdchat

@ICTwitz - Using ifttt . com is a good tool for automatically linking services up, should you find something of interest! #phdchat

@Protohedgehog - @Comprof1 Tweet, blog, send to people you think may be interested, conferences, use your supervisor. Endless possibilities! #PhDchat

@zakphd - @Protohedgehog this is what I was thinking how do I keep up to date when I am researching on a hidden population/ a hidden problem? #phdchat

@SarahAlden1 - @leahmacvie @NSRiazat I have nightmares that during upgrade process someone will ask 'so why haven't you included article xyz' #phdchat

@SarahAlden1 - @NSRiazat yes, I am looking at housing policy and the field is changing almost daily (or so it feels!) #phdchat

@NSRiazat - #phdchat (cont) http://t.co/aPTl0grA

@the15hfloor - @almutei amazing I will set one up right now. Thanks for the tip. #phdchat

@ICTwitz - @SarahAlden1 @leahmacvie @NSRiazat I'm sure that rings true with all of us! "You didn't read article x....idiot!" LOL! #phdchat

@almutei - @SarahAlden1 @leahmacvie @NSRiazat Just be honest: "I haven't seen that yet. But this sounds really interesting." #phdchat

@NSRiazat - @strictlykaren @leahmacvie - been using dropbox or just print out anything that is relevant. #phdchat

@SarahAlden1 - @ai1sa thanks for the info, will have to look into it, however many resources you find, there are always more it seems! #phdchat

@leahmacvie - For me, Evernote is better because I use some of the other Evernote tools: Hello and Food. RT @strictlykaren: #phdchat

@leahmacvie - If #Google had the same thing for docs, I'd use it in a heartbeat and ditch everything else. @strictlykaren #phdchat

@Comprof1 - @zakphd @Protohedgehog always surprised @ research on topics didn't think was availableGood place to start are dissertations/thesis #phdchat

@strictlykaren - @NSRiazat @leahmacvie dropbox is great, never have problems with version control in drafts anymore #phdchat

@almutei - @NSRiazat @strictlykaren @leahmacvie Only print what you will read within the next week. Piles grow fast. #phdchat

@NSRiazat - @SarahAlden1 ~ same in education - feels like it changes 'every day' in educational leadership....I write it and it's out of date. #phdchat

@the15hfloor - One last thing. I've started using http://t.co/YTnLZyx8 which is a bit like Pinterest but for articles #phdchat

@Comprof1 - @SarahAlden1 @NSRiazat Worse is when you think you have unique idea and suddenly its everywhere just as u go to present! #phdchat

@leahmacvie - Our cohort is using Google Drive to store and sort readings- I highly recommend it for storage, too RT @nsriazat: @strictlykaren #phdchat

@KL_Wheat - #phdchat - Hi all, for PDF management once the articles start flowing http://t.co/ZjRDaAgK

@strictlykaren - @suebecks @leahmacvie ah the power of social networking! We are just on weekly #phdchat just now :)

@leahmacvie - That they do! I try to put as much on my Kindle as I can! RT @almutei: @NSRiazat @strictlykaren #phdchat

@almutei - @strictlykaren @NSRiazat @leahmacvie Agreed. Dropbox saved me once or twice already. #phdchat

@NSRiazat - @almutei @leahmacvie @SarahAlden1 ~ agree best to be honest and say not read that yet. Can't read everything. :-) #phdchat

@NicolaParty - PhDs and Postdocs in standardising #minoritylanguages :http://t.co/cy06eyvZ http://t.co/ECKHTvHc #linguistics #phdchat

@leahmacvie - You know Sue?!! RT @strictlykaren: @suebecks @leahmacvie ah the power of social networking! We are just on weekly #phdchat just now :)

@ndcollier - CFP: National Youth-at-Risk Conference http://t.co/ig3TxUGL | #phdchat #edchat #highered #edreform

@leahmacvie - Twitter, I love you for connecting me with friends across the pond Edinburgh @strictlykaren and Sheffield @suebecks !! #phdchat

@SarahAlden1 - @NSRiazat have had to go over my literature with 'updates' so many times I have nearly given up :) #phdchat

@SarahAlden1 - @Comprof1 @NSRiazat After struggling to find people with similar research interests not had that problem (yet!) #phdchat

@laurapasquini - Reading: Push for #OpenAccess to Publicly Financed Research Swells Abroad - http://t.co/eN6FNqUm #highered #phdchat

@NSRiazat - Goodness it's 8.30pm already! Where did that hour go - 8.30pm brings us to the end of #phdchat live chat for this week. #phdchat

@zakphd - @Comprof1 @Protohedgehog #phdchat struggling to find the literatures in my chosen topic. but extremely under researched topic

@chrisajbrown - @NSRiazat @ictwitz I think this is an important point. It can be hard to find conferences relevant & accessible to own work. #phdchat (cont)

@leahmacvie - No, not awkward.... no BS honest! RT @sarahalden1: @almutei @leahmacvie @NSRiazat #phdchat

@ICTwitz - A great chat tonight folks. Thanks for the ideas. A few sites to now explore. Speak soon :-D #phdchat

@strictlykaren - @suebecks @leahmacvie @strictlykaren @laurapasquini another #phdchat colleague

@leahmacvie - We are only human. We have jobs and lives and interests outside of ed! :) RT @sarahalden1: @almutei @leahmacvie @NSRiazat #phdchat

@NSRiazat - Thank you to all for valued contributions/thoughts as always - great to catch up with you all on #phdchat. Have a great week everyone. :-)

@Comprof1 - @SarahAlden1 @NSRiazat My adviser told me at one point halfway thru, no more outside resources I didn't look again until after anal #phdchat

@chrisajbrown - @NSRiazat @ictwitz conferences aren't be all & end all but will be where you find similar academics & researchers. Key networking #phdchat

@strictlykaren - @NSRiazat Thanks again for another good chat #phdchat

@SarahAlden1 - @leahmacvie @almutei @NSRiazat that makes me feel better! will stop worrying so much #phdchat

@TuftsGSAS - @drosvally @noah_daniels @SaraRoseCav @dani2socks Q: How do you stay up-to-date with research in your field? #PhDChat @NSRiazat

@laurapasquini - @strictlykaren @suebecks @leahmacvie Those #phdchat colleagues are spreading like wildfire... in a good way. Great to be connected to ya'll!

@strictlykaren - @Comprof1 Good advice, as you need to keep moving through the process #phdchat

@SarahAlden1 - This was my first live #phdchat and it has been great, really informative and feel I am not alone! thanks

@Comprof1 - @zakphd @Protohedgehog That's good. What is the topic? Perhaps not available in ur field but other related field. change vocab #phdchat

@debbiefuco - Just submitted Chapter 4 (Findings) to committee! They aren't officially in session, but they said they would take a look at it. #phdchat

@debbiefuco - @SarahAlden1 That's the beauty of #phdchat

@Protohedgehog - @zakphd Nothing should be hidden in science/academia. You're using taxpayers money and they deserve to know everything #openscience #PhDchat

@Comprof1 - @SarahAlden1 @leahmacvie @almutei @NSRiazat My committee did ask me about an article I didn't read during my defense. Had others. #phdchat

@NSRiazat - @SarahAlden1 ~ #phdchat thread runs 24/7 informally with the live chat on a Wednesday. Hope to see you during the week on #phdchat thread.

@debbiefuco - @NSRiazat Sorry I missed most of #phdchat today. Couldn't stop writing...which is a good thing : )

@SarahAlden1 - @NSRiazat definately, now I have had a taste I am hooked! #phdchat

@ai1sa - hooking in to methodology reading gp also been useful for me, even though Im in difft country, i get the readings :) via dropbox #phdchat

@Comprof1 - @debbiefuco @NSRiazat Congrats! That was the chapter that allowed me to take a breath. #phdchat

@laurapasquini - Like @debbiefuco I'm sorry to have missed #phdchat today too @NSRiazat - I was creating an assessment. Will check the transcripts!

@chrisajbrown - I think the difficulty of networking at conferences is also overlooked. Confidence in own work when meeting experts may be daunting #phdchat

@NSRiazat - @SarahAlden1 ~ excellent. :-) #phdchat

@Protohedgehog - @zakphd Ah, I may have misunderstood. If it's a hidden topic then even better! Scientists love the unknown :) #PhDchat

@Comprof1 - Two other sources I forgot. Be a reader for conferences and a journal. Sometimes positions available from Prof editors as assistant #phdchat

@sbrookswilson - @nsriazat thanks for coordinating a great #phdchat have a good week one and all :-)

@ai1sa - @Protohedgehog @zakphd star & strauss doi:10.1023/A:1008651105359 hav excllnt article on why some info is better not visible #phdchat

@Comprof1 - @chrisajbrown Important to get card to start communication AFTER conference. Not always conducive DURING. #phdchat

@Protohedgehog - @NSRiazat I'll storify this shortly - will nice to have a record of the conversation :) #PhDchat

@NSRiazat - @laurapasquini @debbiefuco :-) #phdchat

@ai1sa - @zakphd there is no literature in my area (use of sms/txt for counselling) #phdchat

@Comprof1 - @ai1sa @zakphd But there is related research in comm, counseling and ed psych. Right? #phdchat

@ai1sa - @Comprof1 that accounts for 30,000 word lit section re change, counselling , media studies.... #phdchat

@zakphd - @Comprof1 @zakphd @Protohedgehog sorry couldn't catch up with you as tonight is my 1st night in #phdchat. the topic is #dementia & ethnicity

@GradSchoolNinja - @amandalastoria For a doctorate in publishing - what is your dissertation project? A traditional diss. Or a publishing project? #phdchat

@NSRiazat - @Protohedgehog ~ @gawbul and @lizith archive the live conversation on the #phdchat wiki - haven't had a storify before.

@Comprof1 - @zakphd @Protohedgehog Believe it or not I just saw an article about dementia, ethnicity, & music. Link between culture & brain. #phdchat

@NSRiazat - @zakphd ~ sorry my fault - use Twitterfall to make the tweets go slower during live chat to read them all. It's a bit hectic. :) #phdchat

@zakphd - @ai1sa thanks, yes interesting as they know they're having it but they don't know it is called dementia? sorry slow learning post #phdchat.

@NSRiazat - Those new to #phdchat may want to look through archived chats on the #phdchat wiki http://t.co/ObkqLQw6

@windybayou - .RT @justinohearn: My first blog post on grad student snobbery. http://t.co/z4chHZgA #phdadvice #phdchat #gradlife

@jenkidd - #phdchat see if your institution has any funds (maybe also outside your dept?) to host seminar-u decide who is invited to speak/write cfp

@lizith - @Protohedgehog great to see you taking an initiative :) have always wanted wiki owned by #phdchat community :) @nsriazat @gawbul
