This is a handbook and survival manual for PhD students, providing a practical, realistic understanding of the processes of doing research for a doctorate. It discusses many important issues often neglected, such as time management and how to overcome the difficulties of communicating with supervisors; and considers the particular problems of groups such as women, part-time and overseas students. The book also provides practical insights for supervisors, and assists senior academic administrators by examining the responsibilities that universities have for providing an adequate overall service for research students.

This third edition has been extensively revised and updated throughout with new material added on information and communication technology, publishing, teaching and working towards a PhD in a practice-based discipline. Additional material has also been provided by supervisors with new sections on the outcomes of good supervision and on how to examine.
