Spring Issue of GradBritain: Call for Articles
Deadline: 1st Feb 2009
Feeling the post-Xmas credit crunch blues? Why not earn some cash and amuse yourself (and hopefully others) by penning an article for GradBritain? The article must be no more than 800 words and can be on any aspect of PhD life; be it the joys or pitfalls of doing a PhD, the challenge of finding a job afterwards or your opinions on the state of higher education. Please send all articles as a word attached document saved in your name to firstname.lastname@example.org
The spring issue will also feature an article on the RAE results, so if you have any gossip or amusing stories (published anonymously of course) involving your university or department and the RAE, we would love to hear from you. Please email email@example.com
If you haven’t read our Autumn issue, it is just a click away: http://www.vitae.ac.uk/3909/GRADBritain.html
Guidelines are also available for authors at:
GRADBritain is a magazine written by and for postgraduate researchers (PGRs) in the United Kingdom. It is published once per academic term (three times per year) and contains articles written by PGRs of all ages and backgrounds from a variety of disciplines in the sciences, arts and humanities.
GRADBritain provides a platform for PGRs throughout the country to share experiences, advice, and ask questions in order to improve the experience of their PhD. On occasion, it may even make you laugh.
The Attic (a name which commemorates our first physical location) is, first and foremost, a site for the research students of the School of Museum Studies at the University of Leicester: a virtual community which aims to include all students, be they campus-based and full-time, or distance-learning and overseas. But we welcome contributions from students of museum studies - and allied subject areas - from outside the School and from around the world. Here you will find a lot of serious stuff, like exhibition and research seminar reviews, conference alerts and calls for papers, but there's also some 'fluff'; the things that inspire, distract and keep us going. After all, while we may be dead serious academic types, we're human too.
