Pursuing the Ph.D. in the Sciences and Engineering: Trends and Observations.
Salters, Roger E.
New Directions for Higher Education, n99 p91-97 Fall 1997
Doctoral education in science and engineering has changed with shifts in demand for doctorates, increased minority and women's participation, patterns of financing graduate study, and employment of doctoral recipients. It must continue to change by attracting and encouraging women and other underrepresented groups. Initiatives to date include: research centers at minority institutions, aggressive minority recruitment, and professional association support. (MSE)
