Insider Guides to Success in Academia


About the Series

‘Insider Guides to Success in Academia’ offer support and practical advice to doctoral students and early career researchers. Covering the topics that really matter, but which often get overlooked, this indispensable series provides practical and realistic guidance to address many of the needs and challenges of trying to operate, and remain, in academia.

These neat pocket guides fill specific and significant gaps in the current literature. Each book offers insider perspectives on the often implicit rules of the game – the things you need to know but usually aren’t told by institutional postgraduate support, researcher development units or supervisors - and will address a practical topic that is key to career progression. Essential reading for doctoral students, early career researchers, supervisors, mentors or anyone looking to launch or maintain their career in academia.
