During the SLU Landscape day September 16 2020, the PhD forum held a workshop where we engaged with the practical and concrete struggles related to reference handling and ways organizing literature.

As young researchers, the PhD forum have come to realize the value in engaging head on with practical obstacles, which inevitably occur in the everyday work of doing research. One such obstacle is the quest of navigating in the vast (digital) sea of knowledge and keeping track of research fields, journals and references. This becomes even more relevant in these days when working from home put our digital skills to the test.

Together with guest from the SLU library we discussed topics such as:

  • Embracing messiness or take time to get organized? Experiences and thoughts
  • How not to get too stuck in your computer in times of home office work.
  • Practical tips of keeping track of references and literature; software and techniques
