Thank you sciencephd, that does sound like a good idea. I plan on speaking to my supervisor again today about it. I contacted the PI last week and thankfully they don’t seem to be using the data I was planning on using which is great! Thank you for taking the time to reach out :)

Hi there Rewt,

Thank you for getting back to me. I am a worrier, however as I am beginning to realise all PhD students are and it is most likely what got us into these roles in the first place! I have been reading more around the publications which have surfaced from the other research group, their expertise etc which has helped to gain an insight into what route they might go down in terms of methodology. My main concern is that I am using a publicly available data set, which I am worried they will also be using. In their protocol they have stated they will be using both national and international data sets to allow for comparisons. Despite emailing for further information I have not yet heard back from the PI. I think my main concern is that they use the same data set and then decide to expand on the outcomes they choose to investigate based on the availability of the data. Their protocol is based on the analysis of one major outcome however they have stated they may stretch this to investigate other factors. I do hope this makes sense and thanks again for your comments :)

Hi all,

I hope you can help, reading other posts related to undertaking the PhD have been beyond useful so far, so thank you!!

My dilemma..... I basically finalised the research questions for my PhD and have been working on them over the past few months with great support from my supervisory team. Over the weekend i found out another research group has been investigating my exposure in question in relation to 1 of the 3 outcomes i planned to investigate. The research team have published a significant amount of research in the field and their project is due to finish in 2022 (i am currently in year 1 and due to finish in 2022-2023, UK based PhD).

My supervisors have advised this is okay and we will discuss next week however i am now quite worried as i finally got to the point of not feeling too overcome with stress and worry and began to feel settled having finalised by research questions and timeline. I know my dilemma probably sounds trivial and stupid however any advice you could provide would be appreciated. The idea of starting from scratch is making me worry so much!
