Practitioner stories have been recognised as a valuable insight into practice as well as a means by which practice can inform theory. Our practitioner stories about our experiences of being co-supervisors in Higher Degree Research (HDR) supervision have enabled us to further our resonance with HDR literature and at the same time contribute to literature by proposing new issues related to this specific form of practice. Out of our juxtaposed stories we advocate a new model of co-supervision which addresses what we have experienced as levels of inequity within this professional relationship. This model advocates the explication of transparent expectations and opens the possibilities for mentorship and professional development in a realigned supervisory relationship.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
