How to succeed in your Master's and doctoral studies 2 - A South African guide and resource book 2/e

Mouton, J


The past two decades have seen a huge growth in interest in doctoral studies; not only in South Africa but elsewhere as well. Changes in the funding framework for universities in South Africa; in particular; has meant that from 2005 onwards; more funding has been available. However; postgraduate studies are challenging. The ââ?¬Å?digital revolutionââ?¬Â?; as one example; has had a radical impact on the way research is done in the 21st century. Because of the more widespread availability of information (including personal information); students have had to become more accountable when they conduct research. How to succeed in your masterââ?¬â?¢s and doctoral studies is organised around eight steps that should be followed for the successful and ethical completion of postgraduate studies; whether they be traditional masterââ?¬â?¢s theses; mini-theses or doctoral dissertations. How to succeed in your masterââ?¬â?¢s and doctoral studies is based on first-hand knowledge of studentsââ?¬â?¢ experiences with postgraduate studies: what the challenges and problems were; how they navigated the supervisory process and the different styles and approaches of supervisors; the support (or lack thereof) they received from the universities where they had enrolled; and much more.
