Short information about GSSG publication

Last year we started the GSSG to share our experiences from graduate programs providing tips for current graduate students or people who would like to pursue graduate studies in the future.

The publication captures the experiences from a graduate school, providing practical advice on succeeding in grad school.

If you are a graduate student or have completed a graduate program, we would like for you to share tips about graduate school to help graduate students complete their studies with the enormous challenges.

Right now, we are looking for writers who are willing to embark on telling stories and creating content that informs and inspires graduate students.

Topics we are interested in

Anything about graduate school:

  • Your struggles or difficulties and how you overcame them
  • Your unique experiences
  • Choosing your ideal university
  • Overcoming imposter syndrome
  • Choosing supervisor
  • Dealing with bad supervisors
  • Overcoming the Zeigarnik effect
  • Beating procrastination
  • Tips on how to be productive in grad school
  • Tips for thesis writing
  • Daily routine or coping with solitude
  • Coping with rejection from journals
  • Remaining motivated in graduate school.
  • Or anything about graduate school life: the good, bad, and ugly.
