Creating a Lab Manual

Creating Lab Manuals
Date: Tuesday, May 3, 2022
Time: 4:00-5:00 p.m.
Location: Virtual

Many principal investigators (PIs) and lab managers have found it helpful to document roles, expectations, and guidelines for the lab in the form of a Lab Manual. Lab manuals can help onboard new lab members and create a framework for research best practices. Join us for a guided discussion on how to create a lab manual for your research lab, whether you are a PI, lab manager, research assistant, or lab member. We’ll take a look at some examples of lab manuals, a few templates and hosting options, and talk about how you might go about leading a discussion in your lab on whether a lab manual might be right for you. 

This event is open to Princeton University students, faculty, and staff.

Let’s Talk About Where to Publish!

Date: Friday, May 6, 2022
Time: 1:00-2:00 p.m.
Location: Lewis-Fine Collaboration Hub

​​The landscape of scientific publishing has been shifting for a while but the remote research situations forced by COVID-19 brought many inadequacies of the current system into the limelight. Data management challenges, open access availability, wariness of predatory publishers, and an overwhelming abundance of information avenues make publishing research more difficult than ever before. In this workshop, we will employ case studies in small group discussions to examine our choices as content creators and the value we assign to journals according to their various attributes and our own career situations. We will then collaborate in an exercise to envision the future of scientific publishing that we would like to see.

Research Inside-Out

Research Inside-Out
Date: May 16, 2022
Time: 11:00-12:30 p.m.
Location: Virtual

When we share our research, either in talks or papers, we typically focus on the “why” of the research: Why did we study this? Why should everyone care about the results? This usually comes at the expense of the “how”, which often gets tucked quietly into the inside of our presentations: How did we do our research? How did we overcome challenges in the process? How does how we handle and structure our data impact our work?

Research Inside-Out is an event that aims to turn this conversation inside-out, with presenters from different disciplines presenting a research project that provides a window into the process.  

Join our speakers:
Kristina Olson, Professor of Psychology and Director of Human Diversity Lab
Marina Rustow,  Professor of Jewish Civilization in the Middle East, Professor of Near East Studies History, Director of the Program in Near East Studies, Director of the Geniza Lab 
Frederick Wherry, Professor of Sociology and Director of the Dignity and Debt Network
