MMMIGS Intro2PhD: Literature review & research question

During the summer semester 2024 , the Minds, Media, Machines Integrated Graduate School (MMMIGS) is hosting a seminar for doctoral candidates who recently started their PhD. In the second session, the literature review is discussed. Covered topics include finding and reading relevant literature, starting to write (summaries) early on, organizing references, finalizing the literature review but keeping up with the literature in the field, and turning the literature review report into a dissertation chapter or journal paper. Furthermore, this session deals with developing a research question starting from gaps in the current knowledge identified during the literature review. Dividing the research question into subquestions and turning them into practical actions creates a link back to the planning strategies discussed in session 1.
