Capturing your research in pictures - results from our recent competition

By AuthorAID Team | Jan. 9, 2019  |

As part of our 2018 online course "Research Writing in the Sciences" we ran a competition called  "Capture Your Research" which challenged participants to share a picture of them doing their research. We received over 50 pictures and INASP staff voted on which was the best. It was a difficult decision, but the winner was Sabita Gurung from Nepal, who sent in this picture of her doing a morphological measurement of a mouse during a rodent survey in 2018.
