'Written in an authoritative and accessible style, this is a must-read for anyone planning, researching and writing a doctoral thesis or dissertation. I will certainly be recommending this book to my research students.'
'Paul's book was a lifeline during my doctorate: it is now the first book that I recommend for my research students! His book is easily accessible, full of practical advice, and provides useful study strategies to carefully guide you - this third edition is a valuable asset wherever you are on your doctoral journey.'
A valuable resource for new students and academics alike embarking on their doctorate learning journey. The use of example boxes and summaries throughout aids the overall understanding of the main content.
An essential guide, specifically for first time students embarking on a thesis.
I recommend this book to my third year students as it gives them an idea of structure when they are writing their dissertations. The chapters are concise with relevant easy to follow information. I have also used this book myself as I am studying for a doctorate and used it when teaching on the research module.
An ideal companion to the study skills library
This is a very clear book, invaluable to Doctoral students though less useful perhaps to Masters students.
This is a very useful guiding tool for to help students at both masters and doctoral level. the chapters are well laid out with relevant information and I particularly like the emphasis given to the roles of the supervisor and student.
This is a good book which will assist both Masters and doctoral students in the development of a thesis. There is a clear indication of the different requirements in the two qualifications.
The presentation is very logical and would be helpful to all students putting together a thesis
A very useful, helpful text that gives someone confidence and support for submission.
Incredibly accessible and informative
Clear, well written with a supportive, practical air. A book to have at hand to help you focus on the next stage.
In general, a good support tool for any student writing their thesis. Even though our students use a slightly different format, some sections are definitely useful and I would recommend using this book alongside our internal guidelines.
This is an excellent book for first time research proposal writing students and for those who really wants to be empowered on how to write a power thesis. A must have textbook for doctoral students.
Good and relevant for The student
A good and interesting read and will help those students with their projects.
This is a very useful work which I have recommended to any third year students considering Masters. It is authoritative without being intimidating.
Certainly a great book but unfortunatley it does not quite fit into our seminar plans
A great support to those starting to think about putting their research together
A recommended book for anyone planning or doing doctoral research
