Ok #AcademicTwitter. This month, I'm entering my 3rd year of PhD! yayy🎉

I was looking through my 1st research journal and found these "tips" I had written for myself. I thought I'll share them here.

So, here's a 🧵of #PhDtips for those starting their PhD!

1. Maintain a #PhDjournal📒
Experiments, results, failures, meetings w/ guide, seminars, weekly plans, proposal brainstorming, talk prep - everything related to your PhD in one notebook.

(coursework & journal notes can be separate, but I used the same note. 1 note/year for me)
2. Read a lot of journal articles. A lot.
It is the best way to take your research forward!

(I wanted to try the #365papersChallenge, but couldn't keep up. I read way fewer papers than I want myself to. This could be my sign from the universe to step up!)

- learn a new method/theory

So, here you go...

Literature review defined
A portion of a research paper that compiles, describes, and analyzes different sources of information relevant to a given research topic, and then critically draws connections between each source and the research of the author writing the review.
The purpose
A literature review is meant to discuss current debates that exist, provide a summary of the relevant aspects, show how your research paper is placed chronologically, provide an introduction to the topic, and prevent you from reinventing the wheel.
