Pyykkonen, Benjamin A. – Christian Higher Education, 2021
Doctoral-level graduate training is, by definition, very demanding from a cognitive perspective.

In addition to what are likely more obvious social and emotional effects,…

Despite an increase in the research on stalking, much is still unknown about the incidence of stalking in higher-education campus populations.
