Editorial Reviews

"I would be happy to be able to offer this as the 'first port of call guide', perhaps to be given to students during induction." —Lucinda Becker, University of Reading, UK
 
"I think that a strength of this book will be to help readers get away from the very rigid, daunting and old-fashioned idea that many people still have about the traditional PhD format." —Jeanne Godfrey, University of Westminster, UK
