PhDForum Online Study Room

This online study room, which is freely available, can motivate you and help you make progress with your writing. It can be used almost like a library: a silent space to work alongside others.

The room is open 24/7 and it is mostly unmoderated and unstructured; however, there are structured sessions on Wednesdays and Saturdays. More information can be found on the site/ in the room. You can choose to follow the writing schedule on those days, or you can ignore it. The space is yours to make it work for you. Why don't you give it a try!
