Traditional metaphors of master and apprentice include an unequal power relationship where the PhD candidate is supervised rather than advised. In this guide, the author suggests that PhD students are more like our colleagues. The guide has been written with the goal of encouraging those responsible for PhD candidates to consider carefully how to guide and advise people through their candidacy. This guide draws upon and acknowledges the very successful HERDSA Green Guide Supervising Postgraduates by Ingrid Moses. While this new guide focuses on the PhD candidate, it is also useful for supervisors of all post graduate students.

Please note: You will receive directions via email from HERDSA on how to access your ebook. Please allow up to two days.
