In today's episode, we learn about Sarah's preparation for the data collection of her PhD. We talk first about the research itself and the research question that the experiments will address. Then, we address the data collection methods that she will use, and the tools she will use for the data collection. We dive a bit deeper into the participant recruitment, which is of particular importance in Sarah's experiment.
Then, we look into things to consider: data management, and ethics approval, which are also important elements of the preparation for data collection. We then look at what will happen after the experiment: how the data will be analyzed, and how Sarah can make part of her research data open.
Ultimately, we look at the interaction with others: the role of Sarah's supervisor in preparation for data collection, how PhD candidates in her research group support each other, and how she exchanges ideas with peers.
