About the series The Success in Research series, from Cindy Becker and Pam Denicolo, provides short, authoritative and accessible guides on key areas of professional and research development. Avoiding jargon and cutting to the chase of what you really need to know, these practical and supportive books cover a range of areas from presenting research to achieving impact, and from publishing journal articles to developing proposals. They are essential reading for any student or researcher interested in developing their skills and broadening their professional and methodological knowledge in an academic context.


This book is essential reading for anyone undertaking a doctorate. It navigates all stages of doctoral study, suggesting strategies and negotiating stances while emphasizing personal development and future career paths. The authors' extensive experience of supporting doctoral students shines through every page. -- Rosemary Deem In contrast to many other books on the doctoral experience this one is not a survival guide to the doctorate--it's an enjoyment guide. Full of advice and activities, the book guides you pro-actively through the doctoral journey with an emphasis on personal development and with an eye to the future. -- Lucy Johnston

Professor (Emeritus) Pam Denicolo, a chartered psychologist, has just retired from her fulltime role at the University of Reading where she developed the Graduate School system and the post-registration professional practice and research element of the School of Pharmacy. Her passion for supporting and developing graduate students is demonstrated through her contributions as Vice Chair to the UK Council for Graduate Education Executive Committee, as chair of the Society for Research into Higher Education Postgraduate Network and Executive Editor of the Guides for Supervisors Series. She was a key contributor to Vitae's development of the Researcher Development Framework (RDF) and the QAA's Doctoral Characteristics Advisory Group, and is currently contributing to the revision of the Code of Practice. She is currently advocate for Graduate Studies at the University of Surrey. Dr Julie Reeves, has been involved with delivering skills training to researchers since 2005. Currently she is based at the University of Southampton where she designs, delivers and coordinates transferable skills training for early career researchers and research staff. Prior to this she was the Skills Training Manager, at the University of Manchester, for social science, arts and humanities postgraduate researchers, their supervisors and research staff. Her academic background is in politics and international relations, with degrees from the Universities of Kent and Southampton. Julie is one of the key contributors to the RDF. She has contributed to Hinchcliffe, Bromley and Hutchinson eds. (2007), is a member of the CIPD and the SRHE, and is a co-convenor of the Postgraduate Issues Network (PIN) within the SRHE Dr Dawn Duke is the Head of Researcher Development within the University of Surrey's Doctoral College. She leads the team that supports the transferable/employability skills of postgraduate researchers and early career researchers across all disciplines, as well as delivers supervisor training. Dawn received her neuroscience PhD from Imperial College. In 2008, she moved from researching and teaching neuroscience to concentrate fully on researcher development. She has worked to embed and normalise skills training to better prepare researchers for the variety of opportunities available to them. Through her work at Surrey and a partial secondment as Director of Graduate Training for the Southeast Physics Network (SEPnet), she has focused on bringing researchers together with employers from a range of sectors, integrating this wider range of expertise into training, creating spaces for discussion and experience sharing. Dawn believes that the world would be a better place if the amazing research that is done within our Universities had an even greater impact on policy, society and the economy and is dedicated to enabling the next generation of researchers to take on this challenge. Dawn met Pam through a mutual friend at University of Surrey, and they soon became not only colleagues but also good friends. Then Pam introduced her to Julie and the fun truly began!
