Underpinned by practical and current research and focusing on the effective techniques needed to thrive as a supervisor, the second edition is fully updated, providing a go-to guide for both novice and more experienced supervisors.
With new sections examining ethical procedures, the use of social media to gather data and promote research, supporting academic writing and co-supervision, this book guides readers from the initial steps to managing a project through to successful completion.
