The University Library runs a seminar series aimed at PhD students under the title “Take control of your PhD journey: From (p)reflection to publishing”. The courses were first held in the spring semester in 2015, and we aim to run such courses once per semester.
Course material from previous courses is available on slideshare.

We also offer other courses that are open to anyone, but may still be useful to new researchers.

We can run courses on the same or similar topics on request and customize themes as required. You can also suggest other topics that may be of relevance to PhD students. Please contact us by sending an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.

Publish and reach out with your research
The University Library can offer advice on the choice of publishing channels and the use of social media to promote publications and network with other researchers. Useful channels may vary from subject to subject. Please contact your subject librarian.
Social media and research visibility
Social media can be a useful tool to expand research networks and gain greater awareness of your research. New platforms for networking aimed at researchers are steadily popping up, but the most popular ones are ResearchGate and Academia.
