Practical tips for doctoral students

Dr Pekka Belt, Dr Matti Mottonen & Dr Janne Harkonen have published a guide for doctoral students and researchers providing tangible tips for writing doctoral dissertations and scientific journal articles. Publication in PDF format.

The document aims to provide tips to PhD students in all fields, for writing a doctoral dissertation, and for writing scientific articles. The central focus is on how to conduct the work effectively and speed up the process. The intention is to enable researchers to rationalise their graduate studies and the writing of their doctoral thesis, while maintaining high scientific standards. The document is continuity for a document “Vinkkejä väitöskirjaprosessin nopeuttamiseen” originally published in Finnish. This English version is more advanced and includes acknowledging the received feedback from multiple scientific disciplines, as well as the feedback from the cases we have personally guided.
