The People Behind the Papers featured at the University Research and Innovation week!
The People Behind the Papers project is part of the Unisa Research and Innovation week. The project is aimed at lifting the veil on what it is like to be a practising researcher in psychology - and related fields - in South Africa. The intention is to do this through interviews with the goal of publishing these interviews as publically available texts. The interviews are available at the official website for the project: People Behind the Papers.
