Researching from home. Doctoral research in a pandemic

Álvarez, Inma; Dennis, Carol Azumah and Waterhouse, Philippa (2021). Researching from home. Doctoral research in a pandemic. In: Ubachs, G. ed. The Envisioning Report for Empowering Universities, Volume 5. Maastricht, NL: EADTU, pp. 10–12.



This article focuses on how the research plans of doctoral researchers have been disrupted during the COVID-19 pandemic. We examine, in particular, how the restrictions have affected postgraduate researchers in the UK with respect to their study-life balance, the shaping of their project designs, and their evolving research communities. We also discuss how institutions can support these novice researchers right now but also in future with the use of available technologies.
