CFP: LCSS PhD Methodology Conference – deadline 10 April 2017



London Centre for Social Studies is delighted to announce that the 5th LCSS PhD Methodology Conference will be held on 15 June 2017 with the partnership of University of Westminster, Law School.

This conference series is an invaluable opportunity for PhD and early-career researchers from different disciplines to meet and share their precious knowledge and research experiences. The conference provides an excellent opportunity for researchers to present their approaches to research designs, methodologies, methods and data analysis and in so doing to reflect and gain feedback on their studies. It also provides a forum in which research challenges can be explored and, hopefully, overcome.

We invite contributors to address one or more of the following topics and discuss these in relation to their own research:

  • Research paradigms and designs;
  • Research methods and techniques;
  • Research technology and tools;
  • Datasets, data collections and data archiving
  • Research philosophy
  • Epistemological and ontological approaches

Abstract Submission Link:

Submissions should be in the form abstracts (not full papers) and they shouldn’t be more than 400 words.
