Product Description

Product Description

“I started my PhD in September 2003, but it wasn’t long before I realised that it’s much easier to get onto a PhD programme than it is to complete one…”

If the aim of a PhD is to develop the skills of a professional academic researcher, how should you go about it? Using the principles of skill development as a foundation, this book provides a unique approach to the most common challenges of PhD research, including:

Getting to know the literature in your field
Developing your research ideas
Becoming a better academic writer
Coping with the stress and unpredictability of research
Publications and presentations
Writing, submitting and defending your thesis

I have read many books and followed a lot of advice on how to approach writing my thesis. I'm yet to find a way that works for me. I read this book in one day, on the edge of defeat and can honestly say I'm excited to write again.

Going against everyone else's advice gives this book a refreshing and real feel, and it makes so much sense! Highly recommended reading - especially if you're in your final year.
