Time to write and dealing with time stress
Managing the writing process is one of the most difficult aspects of research, especially for young scientists. There are no objective criteria for a day well spent or clear instructions on how to manage a 4-year dissertation, or a two-year research project. Because the writing activities are complex and new to them, they frequently postpone these more difficult and not-well-defined tasks.
Good writing also requires time to lean back and formulate new research topics or see connections between issues or fields.
- Prioritising tasks (urgent and / or important)
