Listed below are links to weblogs that reference Five things I would like my students to know about scholarship:


Ray Girvan

"no such thing as a research project without dead ends"

FX: nods gloomily. I just waited for weeks for some copies of Maxwell Gray's correspondence to find where she lived on a certain Castle Road. When the packet come through the letterbox I caught it almost before it hit the floor, and tore it open eagerly ... only to find she headed all her letters "Castle Road".

Adam Roberts
