about this item

Across the globe, doctoral education is in the throes of change. Diversification, regulation and proliferation are just a few of the developments that pose major challenges for those supervising doctoral candidates.

The second edition of A Handbook for Doctoral Supervisors has been fully updated to assist doctoral supervisors in understanding and meeting these challenges. The book is split into six key parts:

  • the changing contexts of doctoral supervision
  • recruiting, selecting and working with doctoral candidates
  • supporting the research project
  • supporting non-traditional candidates in terms of academic and social backgrounds and modes of study
  • supporting completion, submission and examination
  • the evaluation and dissemination of practice.

The book builds on the success and practical knowledge of the first edition and has been re-written and extended to take into account the latest scholarship in doctoral supervision, address new contemporary themes and present updated examples and case studies. With a self-interrogatory style which enables supervisors to reflect upon and, where appropriate, consider how to enhance their practice, this book is an essential read for anyone involved in doctoral supervision.
