Welcome to A&T COGS, the Community of Graduate Scholars. Being selected to participate in the COGS program marks you as a student with high expectations, and we thank you for accepting the invitation.
The inaugural year of COGS will include a series of specialized seminars in scholarship and research foundations designed to offer you access to a variety of skill-building workshops. During the Fall 2011 semester all COGS must take the core seminars: Research Compliance and Ethics parts 1 and 2, and Library Research 101. The Research Compliance and Ethics seminars will introduce you to the essentials of the legal, regulatory, and ethical requirements that are fundamental to doing empirical research. The Library Research 101 seminar will acquaint you with the most up-to-date databases for searching the professional and scholarly literature in your field.
After completing the core seminars, all COGS will select three other workshops from the optional seminar list:
- Copyright or Copywrong?
- EndNote for Citation Management
- Grant Writing
- Literature Review for Science/Technology/Engineering/Medical disciplines
- Literature Reviews for the Social Sciences
- Patent Basics
- Technology Transfer and Sponsored Programs
