Bryant, Miles T.
Getting your doctorate part-time or via the computer makes it difficult to schedule meetings with your advisor, use the library's resources, or discuss your topic ideas and dissertation difficulties with fellow students. Problems unique to nontraditional graduate students are alleviated with this easy-to-use dissertation guide. In sections devised to follow the conventional structure of a dissertation, Bryant organizes the book to help you locate vital information quickly and efficiently. Practical, targeted, and no-nonsense, this book includes suggestions and tips for: (1) Finding a topic, a theory, and a research method;(2) Creating a dissertation support group, plus an appendix listing activities for a support group; (3) Using a research library from off campus; and (4) Developing a productive relationship with your advisor.This book also contains an annotated bibliography of research books, a list of doctoral studies written about writing dissertations, and an assessment tool for you to evaluate your study.
