New Call for Submissions for the ISPP Junior Scholars Blog
We are pleased to announce our next call for submissions for the ISPP—Junior Scholars Blog. This call inaugurates a new cycle of topics around themes related to professional development targeting junior scholars. Our first topic will be on ‘Applying for Research Grants’.
Considering the multi-disciplinary approach that almost all international organisations offering funding opportunities to junior scholars, have taken during the last years, we have decided to focus on this by looking specifically at the process of applying for research grants. Taken into account that research funding per se is one of the main forces that drives research, it is important to share advices and lessons learnt from those who have been involved in writing applications in order to obtain research grants.
With the aim to exchange ideas, tips but also advices for those who are planning to submit a research grant in the near future, we are inviting for short pieces on this topic. The maximum words limit is between 600- 800 words.
If you would like to make a submission, or ask any questions about submitting your piece, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org (Stavroula) or email@example.com (Emma). The deadline for submissions on the theme of ‘Applying for Research Grants’ is on June 14, 2013. We strongly encourage early submissions (even if it is much before the closing date), so please feel free to send us your piece as soon as you complete it.
As a final note, we would like to invite you to keep an eye on our blog and take part in the open dialogue by sharing your ideas and comments on the pieces that have been already uploaded and also on those we will be uploading in due time.
We are looking forward to receiving your contributions and hearing your ideas on this hot topic!
