The Getting started in research lens on the Vitae Researcher Development Framework is for those in the first few months of their doctoral research. The Vitae Researcher Development Framework offers a comprehensive view of a successful researcher. It can be used to review development needs and progress for all researchers as they move forward in their careers. This lens focuses on the knowledge, behaviours and attributes required to start out in research and to begin developing as a researcher.
