Thread: Literature Review Struggles!

My advice would be to make a draft plan. Specifically, write a skeleton contents page, which contains all of the sections, and subsections that are important. Essentially, it's like writing the contents page before the lit review but in this way you will quickly establish some kind of structure. Then write under the various heading s and you will quickly see it coming together.

My background is in Life Sciences so I am not so familiar with social sciences sorry, but I can sympathise having had two supervisors from two very different fields! I had two completely different areas to talk about that had to merge. I made a few suggestions on some of the crossovers and this became my PhD project. An interdisciplinary approach is a good thing especially concerning publications. I hope that helps :-)

I was in a very similar position and until recently I started a new research fellowship. My advice would be to take work lower than that of your current grade / salary such as a technician (who needless to say I have full respect for). In this way you can work and earn money whilst you are applying for positions elsewhere. I wish you every success!!!

Dear Postgraduate Forum,

I am trying to access the following paper and my institutional access won't allow me to view the PDF at present.

A link to the paper is below:
The reference is as follows:

Westmark CJ, Sokol DK, Maloney B & Lahiri DK. Novel roles of amyloid-beta precursor protein metabolites in fragile X syndrome and autism. Molecular Psychiatry 21, 1333 - 1341 (2016). DOI: 10.1038/mp.2016.134.

Thanks for your help!
Matt.

I fell into a similar position in that I found several typos throughout my thesis after the first submission. This happens more often than you think. I was given advice to prepare a list of what needed changing and I started making amendments prior to my viva. I passed with minor corrections and I am sure you will too. There is some really excellent advice here on what to do, I would just prepare now as best you can in the time you have for the viva.

I found great advice on University webpages as to how to prepare for the viva and that advice really helped (even though it was the page of a different University that I used).

Thread: Does anyone here pay fees for minor corrections or write up?

My University charges around £650 if you need six months in year 4 to write up and a further £650 if you need the final six months of year 4. Post-viva, I believe they don't charge.

Can Alzheimer disease be prevented by amyloid-β immunotherapy? 2010. Cynthia A. Lemere & Eliezer Masliah. Nature Reviews Neurology. 6, 108-119.
Thank you!
Matt.

Thank you for your reply timefortea!

It had stumped me but thank you, I think they mean that I should check the printed version. Apparently it is an old publishing term that is sometimes used to refer to proof-reading before the final version goes into print. Hopefully this is helpful for anyone who is asked to do something similar.

We were fortunate enough to receive minor revisions so I am grateful for such small changes :-)

Thank you!!

Hi all,

I have recently had a paper back from peer review and one of the corrections I am to make states:

Paragraph n, Line n: check galley.

The journal is Life Science based if it helps. I thought it might be to do with the length of one of my sentences? It certainly needs breaking at this point and I wondered if this was what they meant?

I will of course check through the official channels but I wondered if anyone had come across this before?

Thanks!!
