Hidden Cultures in Academia: A Guide for Early Career Scholars
AYA project leader: Pieter Coppens
By the end of 2020 the AYA Science Policy working group aims to have a booklet finished with tips & tricks for early career scholars. This will first and foremost be a way to be of service to young scholars trying to find their way in the academy, but will also be a showcase for AYA members, in which they (realistically) explain the pitfalls they encountered and the steps they took to overcome these. The content is partly based on a survey among AYA members, asking them to describe one major obstacle or challenge that encountered as an early career scholar, how they dealt with this, and what their most important advice would be to early career scholars.
