Summary

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
Easily accessible, practical advice administered in small bites
