Join us in celebrating our birthday in style!

Editage Insights turns five years old today! 

Who doesn’t love birthdays! We sure do. And so this year, to make our birthday super special, we have decided to extend our birthday celebrations throughout the month. Doesn’t that sound like fun! We have an exciting line-up of activities planned during the month, and as readers of Editage Insights, we’d love for you to be part of the festivities.

The truth is we’d be incomplete without you, our Editage Insights researcher community. After all, this is your platform! So naturally, we have some really exciting activities and birthday giveaways for you!

Participate in one or more of the activities listed below and stand a chance to win special prizes in our lucky draw. 

  1. Register for a live talk by PhDiva Lorie Owens on "How I juggled a full-time profession and a PhD at 55"

You must have read up a lot about what you need to do to successfully complete your PhD. But the truth is the road to a PhD is full of hurdles and challenges. It is not uncommon for aspiring researchers to feel demotivated and give up in the process. It is extremely important for you to stay focused and motivated to follow through until the end of your PhD. In this live talk, you get to hear from someone who knows exactly what these challenges are and has overcome them herself? Know more about the talk and block your seat here. 

Ask Lorie a question and qualify for our lucky draw!
Are you finding it difficult to deal with the pressures of an academic career? Send in your questions to Lorie at and you could stand a chance to win our lucky draw!
