How to Get a Research Degree offers insight, instruction, and inspiration, and it does so without minimizing the rigors of postgraduate study. It honours and normalises the many trials of the research process, and in this provides a great service to students. The text includes: getting started; choosing a supervisor; managing your relationship with your supervisor; keeping your life balanced; managing your time effectively, the research thesis roller coaster; thesis design and construction; intellectual property;presenting papers and seminars; assessment and examination of the thesis; and, careering into the future.

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.
