On Tuesday, October 3rd, Dr. Dely Lazarte Elliot, Dr. Jon Rainford, and Dr. Kay Guccione introduced their two new books at a lively book launch event. 

The event was held in the Researcher Development Suite at the Advanced Research Centre (ARC), with attendees including postgraduate researchers and supervisors. The two books, ‘Navigating Your International Doctoral Experience (and Beyond)’ and ‘Thriving in Part-Time Doctoral Study: Integrating Work, Life and Research’ are practical handbooks designed to support postgraduate researchers.


Navigating Your International Doctoral Experience (and Beyond)

This key book by Dr. Dely Lazarte Elliot, Senior Lecturer in the School of Education, provides insight and guidance for those whose country of origin differs from where they have chosen to pursue a doctorate. It harnesses invaluable insights to support a deepening appreciation of a chosen subject of study, manage research, and make the most of what intercultural interactions can offer within a doctoral experience. Each carefully considered part uses evidence drawn from a wide range of experiences and observations, providing various perspectives.

Thriving in Part-Time Doctoral Study: Integrating Work, Life, and Research

Dr. Jon Rainford from Open University and Dr. Kay Guccione, Head of Research Culture & Researcher Development at UofG, support part-time doctoral researchers in navigating their learning experience and providing them with the tools they need to succeed in academia, alongside the work and life challenges they may be facing. Featuring eight highly practical chapters, this book reflects a diversity of voices across academic disciplines and features real-world examples from doctoral researchers. It recognises that each student's learning pathway is different and offers support to allow each individual to take control and make it their part-time doctorate.
