PhD Paths addresses some of the common challenges of doctoral education from deciding to do a PhD and choosing a program, to gaining access. There are also titles that will help you to thrive through each stage of the process up to graduation and beyond. Each book is short, around 25 000 words, and focused, so that you can pick up the information that you need, when you need it. They are written in an accessible style to demystify the unwritten rules, expectations and things you need to know.
This series is specifically for people with professional backgrounds. Its for you if you are an engineer, a business person, a manager, a marketer, a teacher, a government official, a medical doctor, an accountant, an IT specialist, a lawyer or a nurse. If you work in an obscure professional niche, it’s probably for you too. A lot of what I have to share is about the relationship between professional practice and academia, because that seems to be where problems arise. It may also help people in the creative arts because the relationship between practice and academia is similarly complex for these people.
