Milestone Moments in Getting your PhDin Qualitative Research is a guide for research students completing higher degrees with a focus on the importance of language and terminology of the theoretical and practical requirements of a given research program. The book responds to a lack of preparedness among many entrants into higher-degrees in contemporary higher education. The need among non-traditional entrants into higher-degrees for a strong background in core academic principles is made pressing due to the lack of preparation many students undergo prior to enrolment. This book might be consulted by research students as they proceed through the various milestones that may form part of a higher-degree.

A little more than seventy-five years ago, Kate L. Turabian drafted a set of guidelines to help students understand how to write, cite, and formally submit research writing. Seven editions and more than nine million copies later, the name Turabian has become synonymous with best practices in research writing and style. Her "Manual for Writers" continues to be the gold standard for generations of college and graduate students in virtually all academic disciplines. Now in its eighth edition, "A Manual for Writers of Research Papers, Theses, and Dissertations" has been fully revised to meet the needs of today's writers and researchers. The Manual retains its familiar three-part structure, beginning with an overview of the steps in the research and writing process, including formulating questions, reading critically, building arguments, and revising drafts. Part II provides an overview of citation practices with detailed information on the two main scholarly citation styles (notes-bibliography and author-date), an array of source types with contemporary examples, and detailed guidance on citing online resources. It offers authoritative guidance on all matters of style, updated to reflect "The Chicago Manual of Style", sixteenth edition. It contains thorough coverage of scholarly citation: standard practices, an expanded array of digital sources, and hundreds of new examples. It includes comprehensive guidelines - vetted by dissertation officials nation-wide - for formatting research papers, theses, and dissertations and preparing them for submission. The final section treats all matters of editorial style, with advice on punctuation, capitalization, spelling, abbreviations, table formatting, and the use of quotations. Style and citation recommendations have been revised throughout to reflect the sixteenth edition of "The Chicago Manual of Style". With an appendix on paper format and submission that has been vetted by dissertation officials from across the country and a bibliography with the most up-to-date listing of critical resources available, "A Manual for Writers" remains the essential resource for students and their teachers.

The article-based thesis is becoming increasingly common, especially in the 'hard' sciences such as biology, medicine and technology, and is beginning to replace the traditional monograph. Format guidelines vary among universities. This is the first book to summarise the main features, showing the PhD student how to prepare a thesis in such a format. The suggestions are highly practical; both its good and bad examples from published theses support the author's wise advice on all aspects of such theses. Poor figures are not only scrutinised in detail but also redrawn for comparison. Guidance also covers the issues of reprint permissions and copyright. This informative and accessible book, from the author of How to Write and Illustrate a Scientific Paper, has been developed through the author's extensive teaching experience in scientific writing and also his experience as a journal editor. It is therefore an indispensable guide to article-based thesis success.

A doctorate in education has become a requirement in many states to become a district-level administrator. However, the process of obtaining a doctorate is a difficult proposition for educational administrators already working full time. In fact, one-half of all doctorate students go ABD (all but dissertation) and never receive their PhD. Carol Roberts helps remedy this problem with "The Dissertation Journey: A Practical and Comprehensive Guide to Planning, Writing, and Defending Your Dissertation". This is not a technical manual to help doctoral students through the minutiae of conducting in-depth qualitative or quantitative research. Instead, this how-to manual focuses on the practical aspects of writing and organizing a dissertation, in particular the psychological and social hurdles that are involved. Roberts uses a conversational and encouraging tone, along with plenty of graphics, quotes, illustrations, and sample forms to guide doctoral students through the process of preparing, writing, and defending their dissertations. This new edition includes new chapters on ethical considerations, as well as significantly updated and expanded coverage of using the Internet and technology to conduct research. The book features: checklists, organizing graphics, an in-depth list of resources for further inquiry, quotations, illustrations, and other user-friendly elements. It offers easily accessible, practical advice administered in small bites.

High school, two-year college, and university students all need to know how to write a well-reasoned, coherent research paper - and for decades, Kate L. Turabian's "Student's Guide to Writing College Papers" has helped them develop this critical skill. Now the team behind Chicago's respected The Craft of Research has renewed this classic for today's generation. Designed for less-advanced writers than Turabian's "Manual for Writers", this book introduces students to the art of defining a topic, doing high-quality research, and writing an engaging college paper. Gregory G. Colomb and Joseph M. Williams have organized the Student's Guide in three sections. Part 1, 'Writing Your Paper', guides students through the research process with discussions of choosing and developing a topic, validating sources, planning arguments, writing drafts, avoiding plagiarism, and presenting numerical evidence. Part 2, 'Citing Sources', explains why citation is important and includes sections on the three major styles - Chicago, MLA, and APA - all with full coverage of electronic source citation. Part 3, 'Style', covers all matters of style, from punctuation to spelling to presenting titles, names, and numbers. With the authority and clarity long associated with the name Turabian, the fourth edition of "Student's Guide" is both a solid introduction to the research process and a convenient handbook to the best practices of writing college papers. Classroom-tested and filled with relevant examples and tips, this is a reference that students, and their teachers, will turn to again and again. It offers: complete coverage of Chicago, MLA, and APA citation styles, including electronic sources; helpful tip boxes and examples throughout; and, guidelines for the presentation of quantitative data.
