1. Intensive preliminary stage of bibliographic training at national universities (10 credits per year)
This is provided by individual tutoring by national and co-tutoring by foreign tutors as well as by a restricted and mediated access to an on-line database found on the European/International Joint PhD web-site: http://www.europhd.eu/cgi-bin/WebObjects/europhd.woa/wa/biblio.
Research trainees are also trained by the Programme Director in meta-theoretical analysis of the bibliographic material in their own subject area. The contribution of each research trainee will thus enable the mapping out of a complete, fully-researched bibliography for social representations and communication.
