I don't have access to the nature article but the science direct one is here
http://www.sendspace.com/file/xx07ag for the article

Have a thesis meeting with my supervisor today, experimental work is not going to plan so having to include more work on things I wasn't going to have as much on so got to have a re-plan and see what I need to do. Although hoping to have materials and methods so far finished at the weekend.
Hope everythings moving for you guys?
I've made little progress since my last post, written about 2 paragraphs of materials and methods chapter and in my lab work my experiments keep failing- not what I need with only 4 months left, just need to get these last few experiments done and can then write up in peace. I've also had undergraduate students taking up about half my week but they've finished now thankfully, although I do get an MSc student next week (I think) that will need training; and have been helping the new post-doc get settled in. Really should do some work today but I had to nip into the lab today which took twice as long as usual with the snow.
You should be able to find both of them here.
My deadline is the end of July and have loads to do. I'm doing a science PhD and have loads left to do, never done quite so many long days as I have in the last few weeks. I'm about to sort out what I have for my intro so far and send it to my supervisor later today with notes in the sections I haven't finished so he can tell me whether he thinks I need to cover it or not . This will be the first time he's seen anything, not even started results chapters and have loads of lab work left to do. Not panicking yet for some reason though, just busy all the time and tired when I get home so struggling to get some writing done.
Hope everyone else's stuff is going well!
Hi, Does anyone have access to this paper please?
Here you go!
My Uni is pushing to get us submitted within 3 years 3 months, but I think the absolute maximum is 4 years before they start getting antsy. We have our 3 years and then they'll give us the first 3 months after that without paying continuation fees, but if we go over the three months we have to pay for those three months and any further months.
From what I gather its some target thing for all universities that is driving it to get us all to complete in a reasonable time frame.
Kinda puts the pressure on though when I think I've only got 5 and a half months till my 3 years is officially up.
Here is the second one!
Hey, does anyone have access to this article?
Here you go! Trin
No problem. I was waiting for a time-point in my experiment and procrastinating, but its good to be helpful to people!
