Here at City, University of London, we have been active in LIS related research since 1961. Today our Centre for Information Science is well known for producing internationally pioneering research. You will be central to our research activity and supported with a structured programme of supervision and training.

Our research interests include:

We expect you to build and maintain a professional social media presence and actively engage in open digital scholarship. You will also be encouraged to participate in and contribute to wider departmental activities.

Structure

Research students are initially registered for the degree of MPhil. Promotion to PhD registration is contingent upon the satisfactory outcome of a review process. This normally takes place towards the end of the first year of registration for full-time candidates. Part-time students will have their review process towards the end of the second year.
