Secrets of Highly Successful Mentors and Advisors

This volume will serve to inspire doctoral students and supervisors and make the journey to a doctorate less stressful and more successful. Experienced professors from Australia, New Zealand, the USA, and Eastern Europe were invited to participate in interviews. Each interview is presented in the form of a story, in which each outstanding supervisor shares their secrets to success and discusses their supervision styles. Furthermore, through comparative analysis, this book discusses the similarities and differences in various supervision styles and student-supervisor relationships, which may be affected by the specific rules and cultural traditions of the supervisors’ surroundings. Good supervision can support Master’s and undergraduate research as well, and, as such, this book will also be useful for graduate and undergraduate students, advisors, and mentors.
