Technicians and Scholars in Pursuit of the PhD: Some Reflections on Doctoral Study.
Pole, Christopher
Research Papers in Education: Policy and Practice, v15 n1 p95-111 Mar 2000
Researched PhD graduates who completed doctoral study during a period of change in the United Kingdom and confusion around the role and purpose of the doctorate. Based on qualitative interviews, the paper raises issues about the value and outcomes of doctoral study, student self-perception, and the capacity of the modern doctorate to yield both substantive knowledge and craft skills.
