This essential guide offers a new approach to doctoral writing, written specifically for doctoral supervisors. Rejecting the DIY websites and manuals that promote a privatised skills-based approach to writing research, Kamler and Thomson offer a new framework for scholarly work to help doctorate students produce clear and well-argued dissertations. Drawing on a wide range of research and hands-on experience, the authors argue that making an original contribution to scholarly knowledge requires doctoral candidates to do both text and identity work. Their discussion of the complexities of forming a scholarly identity is illustrated by the stories and writing of real doctoral students.

'In Helping doctoral students write, Barbara Kamler and Pat Thomson have produced a powerful and useful book that achieves a delicate balance between providing rigorous and challenging theoretical insights into the complexities of doctoral writing and simultaneously outlining many practical writing strategies supervisors can implement with their doctoral students.' - Teaching in Higher Education
