Purpose The study aims to explore and explain the affordances and constraints of two-mode virtual collaboration as experienced by a newly forming international research team. Design/methodology/approach This is self-reflective and action-oriented research on the affordances and constraints of two-mode virtual collaboration. In the spirit of profes...

Conferences are ideal platforms for studying gender gaps in science because they are important cultural events that reflect barriers to women in academia. Here, we explored women’s participation in ecology conferences by analyzing female representation, behavior, and personal experience at the 1st Meeting of the Iberian Society of Ecology (SIBECOL)...

School-related gender-based violence (SRGBV) is highly prevalent worldwide which calls for a range of early prevention and innovative solutions. The presence of GBV in the school context is well-documented and it highlights the importance of building competencies of teachers and other school professionals for recognizing and intervening in SRGBV ca...
Article
The present study used a longitudinal mixed-method design to investigate the relationship between post-PhD researchers’ writing conceptions and their experiences, scholarly trajectory, and networking capabilities. A total of 134 Spanish post-PhD researchers answered the Post-PhD Experience—Survey scales on Academic Writing and Social Support. One y...

Intimate partner violence (IPV) is a public health and widespread problem, and perpetrator programmes are in a unique position to work towards the end of gender-based violence. However, in order to promote safe perpetrator work, it is crucial to focus on the impact of IPV on the victims and survivors. In this context, little research has triangulat...

Doctoral students face many challenges when writing research articles. However, little is known about how they regulate their writing process in a natural context, due partially to the lack of methods to explore writing regulation from a situated perspective. The present study aims at demonstrating a method to explore doctoral students' writing reg...
Article

Over the past two decades, identity has emerged as a concept framing studies of early career researcher experience. Yet, identity is an amorphous concept, understood and used in a range of ways. This systematic review aimed to unpack the underpinnings of the notion of researcher identity. The final sample consisted of 38 empirical articles publishe...

Purpose Teamwork has long featured in social science research. Further, with research increasingly “cross-national,” communication becomes more complex, for instance, involving different cultures, languages and modes of communication. Yet, studies examining team communicative processes that can facilitate or constrain collaboration are rare. As a c...
Article
Full-text available
Early career researchers’ journey (i.e. doctoral researchers and post-PhDs) is increasingly challenging, but little is known about how they live and interpret their significant experiences, that is how they attribute meaning to these experiences and their associated feelings. Moreover, research about how doctoral researchers and post-PhDs deal diff...
Article
Full-text available
Aim/Purpose: This study aimed to explore individual variation in doctoral candidates’ perceptions about research writing and themselves as writers (research writing perceptions) across three countries (Spain, Finland, and the UK) and the relationship with doctoral candidates’ research conditions and social support. Background: The present study emp...
Thesis
The thesis takes a socially situated perspective to explore doctoral development and doctoral writing from a multimethodological approach (different designs, instruments and analysis procedures). Based on a this theoretical perspective, doctoral development is defined as a process of learning to be(come) an independent researcher within one or many...
Article
Full-text available
In Higher Education (HE), writers need to regulate their writing processes in order to achieve their communicative goals. Although critical for academic success and knowledge construction, writing regulation processes have been mainly researched in compulsory education rather than in HE, with no systematic review focused on this context. The purpos...
Article
Full-text available
Despite the increasing popularity of doctoral education, many students do not complete their studies, and very little information is available about them. Understanding why some students consider that they do not want to, or cannot, continue with their studies is essential to reduce dropout rates and to improve the overall quality of doctoral progr...

This study, which is part of the call for junior reviewers from Infancia & Aprendizaje (I&A), aims to contribute to the scarce literature on peer review processes by developing and analysing a training proposal designed to help junior researchers begin to take part in the peer review process. Five junior reviewers participated in the study. Their r...
Article
Despite the growing number of studies exploring PhD students’ experiences and their social relationships with other researchers, there is a lack of research on the interaction between the type of experiences and the social agents involved, especially in relation to not only problems and challenges, but also to positive emotions and experiences. In...

Project
This is a cross-national research project (Spain, UK, Finland and Switzerland) aimed at examining the identity development of PhD students and post-PhD university researchers (http://www.fins-ridss.com/home). We applied a mixed-method approach to enhance, illustrate and clarify individuals’ perceptions through a set of different complementary studies implying different phases. 1rst Phase The first of these studies has implied the development of a cross-cultural, multilingual survey in which open-ended and Likert-items were combined, to analyse researchers’ conceptions, agency, research engagement, researcher and supervisory support and significant positive and negative experiences. Results lead us to establish different profiles of researchers based on their research and writing conceptions, the support they received and the challenges or incidents they experienced through this journey. 2nd Phase In the second study multimodal interviews has been conducted with a subset of survey respondents to explore their experiences in greater depth. Interviews have been complemented with Journey Plots to collect longitudinal experiences and Network Plots to explore researchers’ active engagement in their communities. Current analysis of data from 70 cross-country interviews led us to rethink how we frame researcher experience of community interaction, research writing and publication and engagement and abandonment intentions. 3rd Phase The third study includes the design and piloting of a educational proposal aimed at facilitating junior researchers deal with identified negative experiences and critical incidents in an adjusted and efficient manner. Different educational videos and training modules have been already developed (www.fins-ridds) 4rd Phase The fourth phase is devoted to the design, launch and managing of a digital space including an instructional block and interactive resources for planning, executing and communicating written projects. It also includes an interactive space where researchers and supervisors can manage their experiences and create networks to effectively support their researcher development.
