Abstract

From Postgraduate to Social Scientist is essential reading for any postgraduate or new researcher who is interested in a career in the social sciences. The book describes the skills needed for success in moving from being a student to becoming an academic or professional social scientist. Written by experts in the field, Gilbert et al. offer a unique insider's view of how to make the transition.

By adopting a clear and accessible approach, this book encourages students embarking on the journey towards becoming a social scientist to engage with every aspect of the process:

- Reviewing and writing skills

- Using the Internet

- Research ethics

- Intellectual property rights

- Writing research proposals

- Project management

- Writing a thesis and reports

- Creating presentations, press releases and popular articles

- Teaching skills

- Careers in social science

From Postgraduate to Social Scientist is designed for postgraduate students and researchers across the social sciences. It will be invaluable for courses that aim to satisfy the Economic and Social Research Council's 'Training Guidelines' requirements for doctoral programmes.
