"This publication represents a thorough updating of an earlier book that was, in its own right, very useful. The second edition...is a significant improvement on its predecessor and I cannot recommend it highly enough for novice or experienced doctoral supervisors." Journal of Adult and Continuing Education How can I get my students to produce good theses on time? My last student failed! What could I have done to prevent it?

It includes: New material on supervising professional doctoral theses A new chapter on the changing policy context in higher education Latest research findings Experiential material from staff development sessions throughout the United Kingdom and New Zealand Now that supervisor training is compulsory, this practical, no-nonsense handbook is essential reading for both the novice and the experienced higher degree supervisor. For novices there is a developmental sequence of advice, guiding them through all stages of supervision from the first meeting to the viva and beyond. For experienced supervisors there are fresh ideas on how to improve practice and solve problems. Grounded in research, this book is invaluable to academics in all disciplines.

The 24 chapters contained in this volume provide diverse but also congruent perspectives on future foci for research into postgraduate education and supervision in the knowledge society. The chapters move from deliberations on challenges for postgraduate supervision at macro level (such as the pressure to increase postgraduate output and the implications of increasingly managerialist institutions) to meso level matters (the form and function of postgraduate education in specific countries) to the micro (rich case studies of individual institutions, programmes and supervisors).

This is a practical guide aimed at supervisors of research students. It is written in a lively case study style and is designed to appeal to supervisors who need a quick fix, and who have neither the time nor the inclination to read a more detailed, in depth book on the subject such as Supervising the Doctorate. There is a growing need for such a volume as the QAA postgraduate code of practice in the UK indicates that all new doctoral supervisors must be trained appropriately. This book will be very suitable for such training courses. The authors both come from a medical background so the book is likely to be particularly well recieved within scientfic and medical departments.

" a fabulous resource for graduate advisors"ãeeEric Mazur, Harvard University Successful Research Supervision offers a research-based practical framework for academics to be able to examine and further develop their effectiveness as research supervisors. Research supervisors working in all levels of higher education must ensure that their students gain efficiencies from working as part of an effective cohort and develop high levels of interdisciplinary understanding and critical thought. To impart these disciplines effectively is essential for any successful research supervisor. From helping researchers to begin to managing a project through to successful completion, this book guides the reader through a series of exercises to identify their individual strengths and weaknesses and then provides theoretically sound advice in a practical and easy to use format. Successful Research Supervision is full of examples of the best practice from outstanding scientists, social scientists and humanities supervisors from both the UK and the USA. This book will encourage and help academics to: Expand their own repertoire and array of actions and responses, thus giving them the flexibility to meet different situations with ease and confidence Identify the optimum combination of approaches to best fit individual students Understand the influence of their own value and experiences in the choice of their approach to research students Be able to choose the most appropriate combination of approaches for a particular curriculum or project Employ a neutral language for developing and assisting others It also provides policy makers and curriculum designers with practical guidelines for evaluating their work. Anne Lee is an independent academic and was Senior Academic Development Adviser at the University of Surrey

This book is a very important contribution to the growing body of work on postgraduate, and specifically doctoral, education ... I find the metaphor of pushing boundaries to be very appropriate, as it suggests a field of study and a range of behaviours and institutional organisational approaches to postgraduate education that are dynamic and characterised by fluidity, creativity and challenge ... Readers will gain new theoretical perspectives, ideas for improved practice, and fresh perspectives on boundaries and pressing issues that deserve to be pushed and conceptualised in new ways. - Professor Ann Austin (Higher, Adult and Lifelong Education Michigan State University)
