An opportunity for PhD and early-career researchers from diverse social science and humanities disciplines to meet and share their research experiences.


London Centre for Social Studies is delighted to anounce that the 5th LCSS PhD Methodology Conference will be held on 15 June 2017 with the partnership of University of Westminster, Law School.

The conference will focus on:

  • Research paradigms and designs;
  • Research methods and techniques;
  • Research technology and tools;
  • Data sets, data collections and data archiving
  • Research philosophy
  • Epistemological and ontological approaches

This conference series is an invaluable opportunity for PhD and early-career researchers from different disciplines to meet and share their precious knowledge and research experiences. The conference provides an excellent opportunity for researchers to present their approaches to research designs, methodologies, methods and data analysis and in so doing to reflect and gain feedback on their studies. It also provides a forum in which research challenges can be explored and, hopefully, overcome.

The 5th LCSS PhD Methodology Conference will address the methodological issues in social sciences and humanities, with a particular focus on research paradigms and designs, research methods and techniques, research technology and tools, data sets, data collections and data archiving, research philosophy, epistemological and ontological approaches.

Prof Will Harvey Associate Professor of Management Studies, Director of 'Business, Institutions and Policy' research cluster, University of Exeter, UK

Dr Maria Iacovou   Director of Social Science Research Methods Centre, Reader in Quantitative Sociology, University of Cambridge, UK
