ACADEMIC PUBLISHING: 4 WAYS TO UNDERSTAND JOURNAL RANKINGS

Posted by Daniel Sloan on Jun 28, 2017 7:20:10 AM

Graduates of Trident’s Ph.D. programs are trained to become independent researchers. As students work towards the completion of their dissertation, they collaborate closely with University faculty who help to guide the development of research skills.

A goal of many graduates is not just to successfully defend their dissertation, but also to see it published in an academic journal. Research that is published in a peer-reviewed journal is a formal recognition of a scholar’s contribution to the public body of knowledge for his or her chosen field.

Not all journals are created equal. Students and alumni alike should be aware of the types of journals out there – many are quite good and can be great CV-builders, while there are some that need to be avoided.

Posted by Daniel Sloan on Jun 14, 2016 1:00:00 PM

Earning a doctorate degree is more hiking to the top of Mount Everest and less strolling through Central Park on a warm summer’s day. Students with the smarts and perseverance to reach the highest summit in academia still require a helping hand, and there is no better source of advice than someone who has previously completed this journey.

As part of their commitment to student success, Trident offers a Ph.D. Mentor program, which has been designed to help guide candidates to the completion of their doctorate. Dr. Carlos Cardillo, a professor in the College of Health and Human Services, serves as a Ph.D. Mentor.

Research methods can be classified in two different categories – quantitative and qualitative. We looked at the former method in the past, so it’s time to shine some light on the qualitative method and how it fits into your dissertation or scholarly research that you’re performing.

While quantitative research requires the collection of numerical data, qualitative research attempts to understand a specific organization or event and does not involve the collection of a numerical sample from a population.

4 DOCTORAL DISSERTATION PITFALLS & HOW TO AVOID THEM

Posted by Daniel Sloan on Dec 22, 2015 8:01:12 AM

The path to successfully completing a doctoral degree is long, filled with many challenges to overcome. While times may sometimes be tough, preparation and determination are key, especially when it comes to your approach to the dissertation.

Here are some of the most common dissertation pitfalls, along with some tips to help you avoid them:  

  1. Identify area of research interests early: The earlier you identify your area of research interests, the better prepared you will be going into your program’s dissertation phase. It’s not often that students have trouble finding an area to research, it’s quite the opposite – many students have curious minds, which leads to having a broad list of interests. Don’t try to save the world with your first research study – find a specific issue and focus on that.
