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.
