The Political Studies Association (PSA) has today (14 November) launched a new guide aimed at PhD students who research Politics at UK institutions.

Welcome to Politics: A Guide for PhD Researchers has been co-written by a range of experts in order to help PhD students feel confident around publishing, teaching, attending conferences, obtaining funding and much more.

As the first publication of its kind, the guide aims to make Politics PhD researchers aware of the opportunities and resources out there to support them all the way through to passing their Viva.

Other opportunities:

  • The PSA has been working since 1950 to develop and promote the study of Politics, and has an international membership comprising academics in political science and current affairs, theorists and practitioners, policy-makers, researchers and students in higher education. To coincide with the launch of its new Early Career Network (ECN), membership of the PSA is now free for the first year for any UK based post-graduate student and early career academic (those up to three years after their viva, who do not have an established post) who join the PSA for the first time when they sign up to pay for future years via direct debit.

  • On 25 November 2016 the PSA is holding a Publishing Workshop in partnership with Elsevier, free to all members. The workshop will be held in Manchester and is a chance to hear from top academic publishers and editors on getting published and the REF. Travel grants are available for ECN members!
