This webinar focuses on understanding the main idea of annotated bibliographies as well as on the clarification of its use while preparing a literature review. 

In this webinar, a step-by-step guidance on how to write annotated bibliographies will be presented using practical tips.

The “craftsmanship” of creating good annotated bibliographies is very important. Not only in the beginning of the doctoral journey to understand the wealth of the literature on the research area of your PhD, DBA or other doctoral program you study for but also while preparing the proposal, as well as for writing up the introduction, literature review and methodology chapters. It will be essential for a high-quality discussion chapter as well.

This free interactive webinar will start at 12.00noon UK time (GMT+1).

To maximise the learning for participants, questions may be posted to the webinar discussion board after your registration. These will be addressed during the webinar.

Key Take-Aways

This webinar will assist doctoral students in:

  1. Learning how to identify and analyse important literature sources.
  2. Get an idea how to establish a proper pool of your literature.
  3. Understand the importance of systematic reading of the main literature in your research area.
  4. Learn how to write annotated bibliographies to support your thesis development and write up.

I passed my viva many years ago, in 1993; however, this does not mean that I have forgotten how it was. I do recall it as it was just yesterday … After my viva, I was part of many Viva exams, of my students at bachelor, masters and PhD level as well as examination & viva committee member of many other students’ theses.

I started my research path as a young researcher at the University of Technology Vienna (Austria), where I obtained my PhD from and at University of Ljubljana (Slovenia). After finishing my PhD, I was working as a Researcher - free-lancer, when I was involved in several national and international interdisciplinary research projects working with research groups from different international universities and research institutions. My research career continued at the Austrian Academy of Science.

In 2003, I was appointed at University of Maribor, Slovenia as an Assistant Professor in the field of Quality Management and Environmental Protection Management, teaching at undergraduate and postgraduate levels. In 2006, I was elected to Associate Professor and in 2014 to Full Professor.

From 2014 to 2021, I was engaged with the University of Wollongong in Dubai, Faculty of Business as an active researcher, with strong engagement in the development and support of the UOWD research platform, the Higher Degree by Research (PhD/DBA) program.

During all my university career time I was engaged in research and/or teaching which is evidenced in my publication record, which contains over 350 items, including journal publications, conference participations, teaching activities and other research and teaching related activities.

I hope I will be able to pass some of my experience to you and help you progressing faster in your PhD journey.

Thesis stage: Data Collection and Analysis

Successfully completing the modules required by University of Liverpool
DBA programme was elating. I was looking forward to completing my thesis
as a Doctoral Candidate with great enthusiasm but I do believe with a
large dose of naivety . The weekly Saturday submissions, the action
learning groups, the literature reviews and CAL submissions required by
the modules not only guided my learning but also provided structure, I
knew exactly what was expected of me from the university , my learning
set and module tutor, furthermore procrastination was not an option.
The thesis phase has a lot less structure, it is very much under your
control and I did feel "lost" without the support of a tutor and my
learning set peers, with little understanding of how to move forward.
Although the previous two years of modules provided me with a skill to
conduct research , apply research to practice and write up a critical
review of the literature )at a level acceptable to that of a doctoral
student), I was somewhat unsure of the way forward, made even worse by
a poor experience with my first supervisor.
My new supervisor has been invaluable to getting me "back on track".
However, the DoctorateHub has also supported this process , and has been
key to improving my understanding of what is required of a Thesis
submission, including: development of my thesis problem and proposal,
chapter development , the detail required in each chapter, structure of
the thesis and the preparation for ViVo. The most important contribution
from DoctorateHub is the access to the expertise of qualified ,
experienced PHD and doctorate professionals. A huge part of the
DoctorateHub experience is the interactive webinars, held on a regular
basis. The opportunity to interact with your peers whilst also learning
from the professionals is priceless and provides me with support,
guidance, structure and most important motivation. I learn from each
Webinar , even if the specific Webinar may not be in-line with my Thesis
My fellow cohort members and other peers on the DBA programme I am in
contact with , will know that I attend most webinars, and encourage them
too, because I obtain such great value from the sessions. The blogs, and
other info offered by DoctorateHub also provides me with much needed
guidance, as well as the opportunity to hear from other students about
their experiences and their advice. I highly recommend joining the
DoctorateHub and using the tools provided.


Thesis stage: Data Collection and Analysis

Working with the DoctorateHub, a range of webinars have been presented and scheduled to cover topics of interest to Doctoral students.

The content and benefits have been invaluable as we progress through our doctoral journey.
