At last virtually everything that a postgraduate research degree student should need to know in a single volume.
A chunky book with many chapters and sections from multiple authors. Target audience is clearly PostGrad and research students however, good quality undergraduates would also benefit from reading sections of it. For example, the parts on designing proposals, academic writing, and ethics would be of wider interest. It may also inspire them to consider PG learning!
A chunky book with many chapters and sections from multiple authors. The structure, as well as the advice on how to use the book, were helpful in ensuring the reader could find and use the information sought. Additional sources of support are also provided for each section which was a thoughtful touch.
A big book with lots of ideas! Multiple authors have contributed to this book on numerous themes. Students on taught courses will find sections on literature reviews, ethics and academic writing useful whereas those on PhD programmes would benefit from working their way through the book as they progress with their research.
I understand that approximatelt 10% of students have purchased this book, however I feel it may be more suited to many of our overseas students now joining UK programmes, or the ones we teach overseas.
This book is an excellent companion for any postgraduate researcher. It is particularly useful when thinking about timing of undertaking doctoral research and the stages of the process from design through to completion, viva and what to do next.
