The Proposal Preparation Workshop is designed to prepare graduate students to research and write their dissertation or thesis proposals. The workshop will focus on the needs of students in the humanities and social sciences. We are scheduling a number of speakers who will explain how to 1) write proposals for the two broad disciplines, 2) do research for your literature review, and 3) organize your research with RefWorks.
At this workshop, we’ll cover the basic functions of the newest version of RefWorks.
