Beyond the doctoral thesis itself, the most significant factors in the progression of PhD candidature and early academic careers
are: the relationships between the researcher and their supervisor(s), the ability to network, and understanding one's place
in the global research arena. Navigating these critical factors and moving from a novice to expert, is a critical undertaking
for every PhD candidate and a process that will continue for years following one's PhD. In this book, scholars from around
the world offer practical advice on how to get the most out of one's doctorate. Readers will get helpful tips on how to sustain
healthy and long-lasting relationships with their supervisors, learn how to develop their networks, and understand the important
changes impacting the modern PhD candidate.
