Content

Preparing a research project such as a PhD dissertation means managing a large quantity of information. You cannot read everything: you must sort out information. You need to understand and to retain complex contents. You have to reflect on your readings in order to integrate them in a coherent knowledge structure. Reading scientific literature can be motivating and empower your self-confidence if you know efficient reading techniques. This workshop offers ways to get effective working habits from the beginning. It is project-based: you will work on your own research project. Please bring scientific literature you want to read.
