1) Reading exam
The reading exam consists in a presentation (20-30 minutes) on one of five papers chosen by the Ph.D. student (including questions on any of the five papers).
A reading is an article published in academic journals or conference proceedings (no arxiv, no popular science).
The Ph.D. student suggests a list of five readings that present a good mix of relevant research themes and methodologies in the field of research.
The Doctoral Commission validates the five selected articles prior to the reading exam. For this validation, the Ph.D. student must provide
- the list of suggested articles with complete references (APA6),
- a motivation for the selection,
- the pdfs of the original articles.
