Réforme du doctorat : mettre en œuvre le comité de suivi individuel s'avère "compliqué" (réseau des VP recherche en SHS)

La mise en œuvre du comité de suivi individuel du doctorant, prévu par l’arrêté du 27 mai 2016, s’avère compliquée dans les établissements, à en croire les vice-présidents des six universités SHS qui se sont réunis le 3 mai 2017 à Bordeaux pour échanger sur la réforme du doctorat et sur la question de l’open access. Les responsables de Bordeaux Montaigne, Lyon-II Lumières, Lyon-III Jean-Moulin, Montpellier-III Paul-Valéry, Rennes-II et Toulouse Jean-Jaurès jugent "peu claires" les missions de ce comité. Pour les uns, comme Rennes-II, cette instance a essentiellement un rôle de veille sur le plan déontologique, afin d’éviter tout problème de harcèlement ; pour les autres, le comité doit aussi valider la progression du travail du doctorant. La même diversité d’approches vaut pour l’offre de formation aux doctorants : tantôt à la carte, tantôt sous forme de parcours avec crédits à valider.  (...) - AEF, par Sabine Andrieu, 12/05/2017

[Sweden] The value of PhDs has shifted but is still disputed

Doctoral education in Sweden took a radical step forward when it switched to a four-year study period and allowed published articles to replace a single thesis, but the value of the doctorate is still disputed by employers.

Should you join a dissertation support group?

Should you join a dissertation support group? | Doctorat et doctorants, PhD and PhDs students | Scoop.it

In the seemingly endless struggles with your dissertation, you may think about joining a dissertation support group. Experts in dissertation shepherding often advocate a group. It be excellent for “solace, support and motivation” (Axelrod & Windell, 2012, p. 101) and sharing of information and writing techniques (Grant & Tomal, 2013; Joyner, Rouse, & Glatthorn, 2012; Rockinson-Szapkiw & Spaulding, 2014). The group can also give you much consolation and camaraderie, a welcome environment in which everyone speaks the dissertationese dialect, and a relieving spot for empathetic grousing. When in the group you report on your work and progress, you have to describe it. Your description enables you to hone what you’re writing about and clarify it for yourself and others. In the group too, you learn from members, hear their critiques and (hopefully) accept them gracefully, exchange much information about work habits and university procedures, and often gain a cheering section.

The money, to be spent over 3 years, will more than quadruple PRIN’s annual funding. (...) - Science, by Marta Paterlini, Sep. 7, 2017

[Italy] Finalmente #ricercaèlavoro! La DIS-COLL per assegnisti e dottorandi con borsa è legge | | Doctorat et doctorants, PhD and PhDs students | Scoop.it

Il Senato della Repubblica ha appena approvato, a larga maggioranza, la legge sul lavoro autonomo non imprenditoriale. Con questo voto la DIS-COLL, l'indennità di disoccupazione per i titolari di contratti di collaborazione, diventa finalmente strutturale, e viene definitivamente estesa ad assegnisti di ricerca e dottorandi borsisti. La giornata di oggi segna dunque una grandissima vittoria per tutte le ricercatrici e i ricercatori precari che da anni reclamano il riconoscimento della dignità del proprio lavoro. Il diritto all'indennità di disoccupazione ad assegnisti e dottorandi con borsa il cui contratto termini dopo il 30/06/2017 risponde – seppure parzialmente – alla necessità di protezione sociale per chi lavora in condizioni di precarietà nel settore della ricerca.
