Welcome to myphdidea.org! We are an online publishing platform founded with the purpose of connecting students at Master level with professors. For students, we hope to encourage a pro-active attitude towards graduate studies, where creativity and developing ideas of your own count more than career-minded pursuit of formal qualifications. For professors, we hope to give due credit to anyone dedicated to opening up science to new participants, on terms that are not basically one-sided.

If you have got an idea for a PhD project, please become a member and upload it! You can then request reviews from professors; both your idea and the expert reviews will be given a permanent digital home on our site. Our crowd-sourced student editor system assures a minimum quality level for all uploads, and respectful treatment of professors' time. Though aimed particularly at students in engineering and natural science, anyone with 2 years of study and an institutional email account can register.

If you are a first time visitor, the best point to start is the FAQ section.
