All researchers will encounter peer review during their career, both as an author of research papers, books, fellowship applications or grants and as an expert who has been asked to review one of these documents. This workshop will introduce researchers to the peer review system, the process, the complexities, the responsibilities of the author and the reviewer and how to get the most out of the experience.

This library workshop is offering a guided introduction to finding information for your research work. Systematic reviews use transparent and replicable methods to locate, evaluate and synthesise all research relevant to a particular question. They are most commonly found in health, medicine and psychology. Therefore, this workshop will focus on developing a search strategy for identifying literature from these disciplines.

The Postgraduate Research Survey (PRES) is a national survey of postgraduate research students’ satisfaction with their learning and supervision experience whilst at University, as well as the wider support they have received, and the environment of the University.
This survey gives you the chance to have your say about the quality of your supervision; the resources relating to your course; and the research community amongst other things. It will also ask you about your motivations for studying, and your professional development.
As a postgraduate research student, completing this short survey will provide helpful feedback to the University of Lincoln, which will be used to help to improve its provision for postgraduate research students for years to come. You also have the option to be entered into a prize draw to win a £100 or one of two £50 prizes.
The survey will run from week commencing the 20th March 2017. An invitation email will be sent providing a link to complete your survey and have your say!
THE SANTANDER POSTGRADUATE RESEARCH PROJECT FUND 2016/17
In 1996 Emilio Botín, Chairman of Santander, decided that the bank should be useful to the communities in which it operates. With the conviction that the University is a vital cornerstone of development and progress, the division began to grow and so did its global outreach; eventually expanding into more than 20 countries, including Brazil, Mexico, Argentina, Portugal and the UK. So far, Santander Universities has donated over €1 billion in the shape of scholarships, mobility grants, support for special projects and academic and non-academic awards.
The University of Lincoln has been awarded funding to extend Santander’s mandate for internationalisation and innovation, and are pleased to announce a new call dedicated to support for research undertaken by our postgraduate research students.
Open to all postgraduate research students
