Key Players in the Dissertation Process.
Katz, Elinor L.
New Directions for Higher Education, n99 p5-16 Fall 1997
Society, the university, faculty, and student are four key players in the doctoral dissertation process, which is analyzed by examining institutional practices, dissertation obstacles, and management systems. A five-step dissertation system helps students negotiate the complex process: (1) preparation for research; (2) a research course sequence; (3) proposal development; (4) dissertation research; and (5) defense of the study.
