Description: For many doctoral candidates, the most daunting aspects of the doctoral project are not the research, the synthesizing of complex subject matter, or the writing. While these do present challenges, the most difficult obstacles to overcome often center around the unstructured, isolated nature of the work. If you aren’t organized and disciplined, with an effective plan in place, the doctoral project can be overwhelming—especially for those also balancing work and family.
Dr. Kathleen Andrews has developed a practical, step-by-step process for producing an exceptional doctoral project. This concrete, commonsensical guidance provides an effective structure that will be a tremendous help for any student taking on the challenging, yet wonderfully rewarding academic endeavor that is the doctoral project.
