Should you share an office with your supervisor?

Should you share an office with your supervisor? | Research Education | Scoop.it

"Being physically close together is better. Teams that worked in the same place produced papers with a bigger impact than those who lived further apart. This was particularly true when you measure the physical distance between the first and last author of a paper. Check out the scatter plot above: It shows that teams located in the same building did better than teams that were merely in the same city, and teams that were in the same city did better than those that were inter-city"

Maria João Loureiro's curator insight, January 26, 4:22 PM

Interesting but to think about the issue we need to discuss the term collaboration (that as different meanings, for the author of the message it seems related to brainstorming, a narrow perspective for m ) as well as the process... don't you think so?

7 Ways to Survive a Lit Review | GradHacker

7 Ways to Survive a Lit Review | GradHacker | Research Education | Scoop.it

"This summer I experienced a grad student rite of passage: crafting a review of literature. The way was fraught and I had to overcome everything from an avalanche of articles (let’s just say my snowball method raged out of control) to a complete inability to conceive of any kind of organization. I also developed fascinating new ways to procrastinate. Thankfully, I follow #phdchat on Twitter, and the participants’ sage words on the process helped me move from a state of near paralysis to fruitful, concentrated writing sessions. These writing sessions eventually led to a Lit Review that I really, really enjoyed writing."

Book of the week: "On Bullshit:"

Book of the week: "On Bullshit:" | Research Education | Scoop.it

"One of the most salient features of our culture is that there is so much bullshit. Everyone knows this. Each of us contributes his share. But we tend to take the situation for granted. Most people are rather confident of their ability to recognize bullshit and to avoid being taken in by it. So the phenomenon has not aroused much deliberate concern. We have no clear understanding of what bullshit is, why there is so much of it, or what functions it serves. And we lack a conscientiously developed appreciation of what it means to us. In other words, as Harry Frankfurt writes, "we have no theory.""

Academic publishers make Murdoch look like a socialist

Academic publishers make Murdoch look like a socialist | Research Education | Scoop.it

"You might resent Murdoch's paywall policy, in which he charges £1 for 24 hours of access to the Times and Sunday Times. But at least in that period you can read and download as many articles as you like. Reading a single article published by one of Elsevier's journals will cost you $31.50. Springer charges €34.95, Wiley-Blackwell, $42. Read 10 and you pay 10 times. And the journals retain perpetual copyright. You want to read a letter printed in 1981? That'll be $31.50.
