Research on Doctoral Study: An Annotated Bibliography of Doctoral Disserations on Doctoral Study.
Butters, Robert S.
The development of this annotated bibliography of 58 doctoral dissertations arose from an interest in doctoral study in general, and concern for the magnitude of the attrition problem at the doctoral level in particular. Dissertations date from 1970 to 1990. Among the dissertations summarized are those relating to such topics as: factors relating to success and attrition; quality of advisement and support perceived by doctoral candidates; physological factors of stress attendant upon doctoral study; gender differences; relationships with major advisors and dissertation committees; foreign students; sources of support; dissertation-writing experiences; motivation of candidates; instrumentation and methodology; data analysis skills; and measures of assessing doctoral candidates.
