I have purchased the ' Personalized Back Cover' option and this is the text that should appear at the back cover of my book: Is there room for yet another book on PhD-writing? Yes there is. Most of the available publications on this topic are contributions from professional academics, written from the perspective of supervisors or examiners rather than from that of successful candidates. Most of them are too long and not always user-friendly, while their approach is, more often than not, too scientific to be accessible to the average candidate. It is with these considerations in mind that the author, an average doctoral candidate who wrote his PhD thesis while working full-time, submitting his written work for examination within 24 months of becoming registered as a research student in one of the UK's top Law Schools, set out to write this book, which is, uniquely, written from a student's perspective. What makes of this work an original contribution is not the novelty of the topic addressed in it but, rather, its brevity, its practical approach, its simplicity, the background of its author (a recent, successful PhD candidate) and the motivation of its author: to help candidates complete their PhD thesis in under three years, as the author of this book did. This short book contains a wealth of practical advice and guidance on the issues involved in conceptualizing, organizing and writing your doctoral thesis so that you can increase your chances of surviving the ordeal of PhD thesis writing with the least amount of pain and with the minimum investment in terms of the time and effort spent pursuing your objective.

What percentage of graduate students entering PhD programs in the arts and sciences at leading universities actually complete their studies? How do completion rates vary by field of study, scale of graduate program, and type of financial support provided to students? Has the increasing reliance on Teaching Assistantships affected completion rates and time-to-degree? How successful have national fellowship programs been in encouraging students to finish their studies in reasonably short periods of time? What have been the effects of curricular developments and shifts in the state of the job market? How has the overall "system" of graduate education been affected by the expansion of the 1960s and the subsequent contraction in enrollments and degrees conferred? Is there "excess capacity" in the system at the present time? This major study seeks to answer fundamental questions of this kind. It is based on an exhaustive analysis of an unparalleled data set consisting of the experiences in graduate school of more than 35,000 students who entered programs in English, history, political science, economics, mathematics, and physics at ten leading universities between 1962 and 1986. In addition, new information has been obtained on the graduate student careers of more than 13,000 winners of prestigious national fellowships such as the Woodrow Wilson and the Danforth. It is the combination of these original data sets with other sources of national data that permits fresh insights into the processes and outcomes of graduate education. The authors conclude that opportunities to achieve significant improvements in the organization and functioning of graduate programs exist--especially in the humanities and related social sciences--and the final part of the book contains their policy recommendations. This will be the standard reference on graduate education for years to come, and it should be read and studied by everyone concerned with the future of graduate education in the United States. Originally published in 1992. The Princeton Legacy Library uses the latest print-on-demand technology to again make available previously out-of-print books from the distinguished backlist of Princeton University Press. These editions preserve the original texts of these important books while presenting them in durable paperback and hardcover editions. The goal of the Princeton Legacy Library is to vastly increase access to the rich scholarly heritage found in the thousands of books published by Princeton University Press since its founding in 1905.

Writing a research thesis can be a long, lonely, and daunting journey for many graduate scholars. It is not uncommon to hear of PhD and Master's students giving up halfway… but this fate does not need to befall you. This book provides the necessary cognitive toolkits to help you chart your research destiny and to help you strategise and overcome many of the challenges that graduate scholars experience in their research journey. You may be able to save hundreds of hours and thousands of dollars along the way. What people are saying about the book “Every page of Dr. Yoong’s book brought back memories of my Ph.D. program in the early 1970 at a Midwestern U.S. university. More specifically, it brought back memories of fellow students who did not complete the program. Reading this book before or during their studies would have helped many of them be successful. I hope to ensure that students entering our Ph.D. program read this publication. It would be even more beneficial if they read it before making a decision to pursue a doctorate.” Professor Dr. Douglas A. Boyd Emeritus Professor of Communication University of Kentucky Lexington, KY, U.S.A. “In 3 Years for a PhD? Professor Yoong provides a highly accessible reflection and practical guide through the journey of a PhD. Drawing from personal experience undertaking his PhD in Australia and as a supervisor, the book takes us through the personal and intellectual attributes required and developed in undertaking a PhD, as well as the people encountered at various stages on the way to completing a successful thesis and embarking on a research career. I really enjoyed the book, it is written in an accessible style with many of the points often not addressed in this kind of book.” Professor Dr. Richard Fitzgerald Research Committee Chair Department of Communication University of Macau, China “I wish I could have read this book during my doctoral study! Dr Yoong’s personal and professional expertise and insights into his research and supervision experiences are fruitful and relevant to those who plan to undertake their research endeavours. Despite the ups and downs of your research journey, this book is definitely your great companion to guide you until the end of the tunnel.” Assoc. Prof. Dr. Singhanat Kenny Nomnian Deputy Director for Communication and Academic Services Research Institute for Languages and Cultures of Asia Mahidol University, Thailand “This is a book for any graduate student who is in a stare-down contest with their MA thesis or PhD dissertation. David Yoong has been there, and he did more than live to tell the tale: He has also gone on to coach many others to completion. If you are looking for a companion and guide to walk you through the rough patches, then pick up this heartfelt and insightful manual. It is written for you.” Assoc. Prof. Dr. Jamin Pelkey Department of Languages, Literatures and Cultures Ryerson University, Canada "This is one little book every graduate student should read before embarking on a new journey of writing a thesis. It will save them a lot of time and tears." Professor Dr. Kenichi Namai School of International Liberal Studies Waseda University, Japan

This book on Thesis Writing for Master’s and Ph.D. program focuses on the difficulties students encounter with regard to choosing a guide; selecting an appropriate research title considering the available resources; conducting research; and ways to overcome the hardships they face while researching, writing and preparing their dissertation for submission. Thesis writing is an essential skill that medical and other postgraduates are expected to learn during their academic career as a mandatory partial requirement in order to receive the Master’s degree. However, at the majority of medical schools, writing a thesis is largely based on self-learning, which adds to the burden on students due to the tremendous amount of time spent learning the writing skills in addition to their exhausting clinical and academic work. Due to the difficulties faced during the early grooming years and lack of adequate guidance, acquiring writing skills continues to be a daunting task for most students. This book addresses these difficulties and deficiencies and provides comprehensive guidance, from selecting the research title to publishing in a scientific journal.

Machine translation (MT) was one of the first non-numerical applications of the computer in the 1950s and 1960s. With limited equipment and programming tools, researchers from a wide range of disciplines (electronics, linguistics, mathematics, engineering, etc.) tackled the unknown problems of language analysis and processing, investigated original and innovative methods and techniques, and laid the foundations not just of current MT systems and computerized tools for translators but also of natural language processing in general. This volume contains contributions by or about the major MT pioneers from the United States, Russia, East and West Europe, and Japan, with recollections of personal experiences, colleagues and rivals, the political and institutional background, the successes and disappointments, and above all the challenges and excitement of a new field with great practical importance. Each article includes a personal bibliography, and the editor provides an overview, chronology and list of sources for the period.
