Research Week: Nicole's Corner

by Nicole Thornton @ Institute of Sustainable Futures
(with a little help from Ashley)

Nicole was one of our lovely panel members during Research Week. In the picture on the left you can see not only my feet, but the great big piles of resources she bought along to the panel. I immediately knew she had to have a blog corner of her very own. Rather than add in a long list of bullet points, I've bookmarked everything in our diigo group with the tag nicolescorner. This way you can easily comment on resources, or add them to your own diigo bookmarks.

The pièce de résistance of her collection is the book in the picture: Organizing and managing your research : a practical guide for postgraduates by Renata Phelps, Allan Ellis and Kath Fisher.

"Deals with the day-to-day aspects of managing and organizing research. It focuses on strategies, skills and systems that increase the efficiency and effectiveness of research practice across all disciples" (Summary on the back cover)

It's the bible for PhD students.
