A researcher's story: Using AuthorAID resources to support my research

Case Study by Farooq Azam Rathore, published on June 5, 2014

Countries: Pakistan

Tags: AuthorAID,

Farooq Azam Rathore speaks about how he used the AuthorAID resources as a virtual mentor. Through blog posts, writing tips and the library, he continues to make use of the resources available on the AuthorAID website. 

“One of the biggest challenges a young researcher from a developing country faces is how to find a good mentor who can guide him or her in the right direction, helping them to realise their potential. While I was unable to find such a mentor in my home country, Pakistan, I was lucky to find a virtual mentor; AuthorAID. The best thing about AuthorAID as a virtual mentor is its 24/7 availability. It offers a wealth of resources and knowledge that are hard to find elsewhere. In addition it offers opportunities for broader networking with likeminded colleagues and peers all around the globe.
