Dear forum members,
Can anyone help me source these journal articles please:
1. Testing rates for sexually transmitted infections among HIV-infected men who have sex with men attending two different HIV services
2. Sexual behaviour, condom use and rates of sexually transmitted infections in HIV clinic attendees in South East London
3. Increasing screening frequency in men who have sex with men: impact of guidance on risk profiling on workload and earlier diagnosis of sexually transmitted infection and HIV
4. HIV-testing of men who have sex with men: variable testing rates among clinicians
Thanks very much,
Thank you for your reply; I did notice people share papers on here which is great but I was asking in general :-)
I know tracking down authors is a good way and I suppose going in other libraries to see if they subscribe to the particular journals eh?
Thanks for posting your thread and I think I can give you some helpful suggestions;
Firstly, if the interview is for a topic already sorted and not your own research, it is always helpful to read around the topic area in depth (very in depth) as this shows you have given a lot of thought to the subject. I would consider thinking about what data collection methods could be used in this topic, are there any ethical issues etc
I would seriously think about doing a 3 year PhD plan shown in a table format on how you would think the research could go i.e year 1,2 3 etc this shows again you have given serious thought to the topic. It doesn't have to be in great detail, I just feel it looks good when you hand them a piece of paper showing you have put pen to paper (this worked for me!)
Also, think about why YOU are the best candidate, what can you give to the university and the research institute; demonstrate your qualities. Why do you want to do a PhD; is it because it 'fits' you, do you want a career in academia?
Also research the actual university, lots of people fail to get a scholarship because they do not bother to look at the university or the institute beforehand (academics do not like this!)
Hope this helps,
If I can be of any more help, let me know!
Can't help with accessing either of those papers but I would always suggest contacting the author(s) directly.
Your second paper, 'Dancing on the Borders of Article 4'....... the author's contact details are;
Faculty of Law, Lund University, Sweden
Juridicum Box 207, Lilla Grabrodersgatan 4-6
Lund 221 00 Sweden
[email protected] and [email protected]
Nice that she has put an email address as well so it should be quicker getting access to her paper :-)
Hope this helps
Good Afternoon all,
I just wanted some advice on finding papers that cannot be located and only in abstract form. I have a lot of papers that are not accessible through my library or databases. Is there any other way of getting hold papers other than going through the tedious task of contacting the authors for a copy?
Thanks a lot
Just a brief overview, I am a first year PhD student and am doing some preparatory reading.
I wonder whether someone could give me some advice relating to literature searching. I am using Zotero to manage my references and have a humongous amount so far (as is normal for PhD)and this will need to be read through and analysed etc. Does anyone have advice on the best way to analyse the papers, I think simply printing them off is one option and annotating them with highlighters etc but is there another way such as annotating PDF's? I see that I can convert PDF's to word which may be useful and can annotate them on word but what are other people's experiences? Just trying to find the most timely method/tool.
Just starting a thread to find out people's opinions on meetings with supervisory team. I am due to start PhD in Sep 12 and need to start thinking about how often I will need to see my supervisory team.
I have a team of three supervisors. My Director of studies likes the use of social media to maintain contact i.e skype etc and I really like this too as I am quite a way from the University itself. The other two supervisors may prefer Face to Face meetings which I agree is a definite necessity as well. SO... the question I am asking is, how often did you see/are seeing your supervisory team?
