By Roy Martin, Temple University, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Graduate students preparing theses or dissertations will find in this manual a great deal of practical assistance and information. The author breaks down the process into several steps and provides specific suggestions for effectively managing each of these stages. He also provides pointers for working with faculty. Chapters are included on selection of the research topic, the formal proposal and committee selection, the internal structure of the thesis or dissertation, self-control and time management techniques, and the oral defense. This book not only demystifies the thesis/dissertation process, it also provides vital material that is not typically covered in research methodology texts. It will be particularly useful to those students in psychology or education programs who have not had extensive research experience.
