Many of my contemporaries who did PhDs are just starting out in academia, which really brings home some of the issues. But it’s probably more closely linked to the work I’m doing on the OAPEN-UK project, which looks at open access monographs in the humanities and social sciences. One of the luxuries of a long research project (as this one is) is that unexpected issues and concerns surface and become more important over the course of the work, and – one year in – early career researchers are really beginning to make themselves felt.
