Ever since I began doing research in social psychology there were two very important issues I had to tackle – both answered with one simple solution – my own research Wiki.
The first critical issue was organization. It became apparent very early that I need a way to keep track of what I [...]
Last semester a professor in our department asked me whether I have some recommended readings for his PhD class on what constitutes a theoretical contribution in the field of management. Looking over the classes I took and papers I put aside over the years I was able to draft the following list.
At the beginning of the current semester I was asked to welcome our new PhD arrivals with a basic orientation to our department’s program.

The one I use is Conference Alerts (Facebook group here):
Receive free e-mailed updates of conferences [...]
Sharing and discussing ideas with others is part of what’s exciting about being in academia and doing research.
