I would check with ypur supervisor. I wluld go for it if it is a pistgrad conference, they are generally very friendly, but perhaps wait until next year if a larger journal or pg/early career one.

Thank you Wowzers, thst is quire reassurimg- I feel guilty if I do not put the hpurs in, but I shall use the quality, not quantity, mantra! I do not date take sick leave- the company are very quick to fire people and, as it an entry level job, there are many people waiting to fill my slot!

Hi Fled, thank you for the reply. I do not have many days holiday left, but the problem is that my company restricts hours during the summer, so you cannot take holidays. It is very stressful, although i am.suring havimg children and doing the PhD is a lot, too!

Does anybody else feel like that? I am due to submit in October, I have two chapters to re-write, a bit more data collection to do (maybe a weeks worth), and I am working 42 hpurs a week in a non academic job. I am finding it increasingly hard, but have no choice but to keep my hours the same due to finances. Is anybody else in the same position, or has been, and how did you cope?

Is it a good idea to cite your own published work in the thesis? It wouldnt be at length, but to show that some work has been published? Or is it better to just leave it out, and see if examiners look you up and find it?

Which is more difficult? Getting work into peer reviewed journals, which may be a part of the thesis, or getting the thesis through the PhD and passing?

I would not give them the satisfaction of being allowed to reject you.

Do you approach a university before or after trying to secure funding?

Hi I am in humanities, and due to submit end of the year. I have an idea of a potential postdoc idea, and some funding spurces. My question is, when would i approach these bodies? Also, at what stage do you approach a university? And do these fundings include living costs? I have no idea how it all works, so any help appreciated!

Hi i have a pgce. I found the job market very poor in my subject. Time wise, i think you would struggle even pt with a postdoc.

First, congratulations! I am not too sure,but i imagine it would be ok for you to email your external, cc your supervisor in, and ask for clarification?
