Our free event for postgraduates and early-career researchers

26 February 2019

The BPS 2019 Psychology Research Day will bring together psychology postgraduates and early-career researchers to meet and learn about research skills, resources and support networks.

The free event, on Thursday 21 March at the University of London’s Senate House, will feature talks, advice clinics, exhibition stands, library tours and much more.

A postgraduate student who attended last year’s event said:

“The whole day was a great success. I learnt so much from attending, and it was definitely worth the trip. The day encouraged me to try new things in my research, like use of social media/blogging, and has helped clarify some questions I had about starting a career in research. Thank you so much - I thoroughly look forward to your next event.”

This year’s speakers include:

  • Thomas Baldwin, Paul Allchin, Mura Ghosh (M25, British Library, Senate House Library) - Using libraries
  • Richard Crookes (EBSCO) - Features and functionality of APA databases on EBSCOhost
  • Dr Simon Goodman (Coventry University) - Qualitative research methods
  • Rebecca Harkin (Wiley) - Publishing with Impact
  • Dr Christian Jarrett (editor of the BPS Research Digest) - Why you should tell the world about your research through blogging
  • Dr Ray Kent (Royal Veterinary College) - Early Career researchers and bibliometrics
  • Dr Gillian Shorter (Ulster University) - Quantitative research methods
  • James Soderman (Queen Mary) - Conceptual mapping and the research question

A complimentary lunch and refreshments will be provided.

This is a free event, but if you wish to attend you must book your place online.
