You are here

Welcome to the IACCP Youth Group Blog

Elina Halonen

What you see here is the result of a group of enthusiastic, young researchers coming together in Istanbul in June 2011 at the first IACCP PhD Summer School: we wanted to have a place to present new ideas in a more fast-paced and interactive way than the traditional peer-reviewed channels in academia. 

This blog aims to be accessible to everyone without compromising on academic integrity: in practise this means posts written in a reader-friendly, informal style with references provided at the bottom of each post for those who want to follow them up. We also want the blog to be interactive and a conversation starter.

That's why we welcome ideas that are not necessarily yet published anywhere, ideas that you're just developing and want to get feedback for. Alternatively, if you see a specific topic appearing in the media and want to comment on it based on your research experience and expertise, please get in touch! 

Our dream for the blog is that researchers of all levels would get involved in the writing (email us with your ideas and we'll post them), or alternatively we, the editors, will write up summaries of other people's research. If you'd like to see your research ideas presented here but don't want to write them up yourself, get in touch!

In addition to the blog, the Youth Group initiatives also include a Facebook group and a email discussion forum - come and join the conversation there as well:

Facebook group: http://www.facebook.com/groups/iaccp.nextgeneration/

Discussion forum: http://groups.google.com/group/iaccp-nextgeneration 


But for now - welcome, and enjoy!
