The American Doctorate and Dissertation: Six Developmental Stages.
Goodchild, Lester F.; Miller, Margaret M.
New Directions for Higher Education, n99 p17-32 Fall 1997
The American doctorate owes its lineage to the German research ideal, but its purpose, structure, and process have become Americanized through six developmental stages over a century and a half. Federal and state governments, accreditation officials, policymakers, campus administrators, faculty, and students all have sought to professionalize candidates for college teaching. Calls for systemic reform have been largely ineffectual. (Author/MSE)
