Syracuse University Libraries, the Graduate School, the Office of Research, and the Graduate Student Organization are co-sponsoring The Graduate Student Forum on Research Methodologies on Friday, November 13th, 2015 from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. in the Peter Graham Scholarly Commons in Bird Library.
Graduate student researchers are invited to showcase their research and data management strategies with the University community through panel discussions and poster sessions. Panels may be organized around a particular methodology or may present a range of methodological options for comparison and discussion. Presentations may involve work already presented in a scholarly venue, as well as work in progress, provided that the focus is on the method(s) employed (e.g., data collection, management, and interpretation) rather than on the results of the research or its contribution to a given field.
The overall goal of the event is to enable graduate student researchers to exchange information about research practices and to foster the visibility of research across the University, especially during this time of national focus on the importance of research integrity and transparency.
Organizers invite Syracuse University and SUNY ESF graduate students to submit proposals for a panel presentation or a poster session using the online application form. Panels are 90 minutes in length and may consist of three to five participants. Poster sessions will be in two hour-long blocks interspersed during the day. The forum will also feature data software vendor demos and a drop-in IRB “help desk.”
The deadline for submissions is Wednesday, October 7, 2015. Proposals will be reviewed by the planning team, which includes SU Librarians Paul Bern, Tasha Cooper, Annie Rauh, Bonnie Ryan, Patrick Williams, PhD student and SU Graduate Student Organization Senator Bryan Dosono, Assistant Vice President for Strategic Research Development Trish Lowney, Glenn Wright, Director of Graduate School Programs, and faculty from several departments. Applicants will be notified of their proposal status not later than October 31.
