Product Description


“It is extremely readable and candid. As a faculty [member], I want students to know the ‘real deal’. The approach offered in this book provides one that is holistic realizing that our students are people with lives that influence the dissertation process. The Tracesea sections came at the right time when I was going to ask the very same question. Multiple voices of student and faculty add a wonderful dynamic. Love the use of PowerPoint slides, which would help me tremendously in my dissertation seminar.”   (Gretchen McAllister)

 “I really like the detail, experiences, reflections by students, and layout.” (Gene Gloeckner)

About the Author

Dr. E. Alana James, received her Ed.D. in educational leadership from Teachers College in 2005.  Since then she has helped over 30 doctoral candidates in either educational leadership or business move through the process on to graduation.  Working primarily as supervisor for a number of online for profit universities, but also sometimes in the role of committee member, she identified the key places and challenges that created extra stress and, unfortunately, sometimes breakdown.  This book and her work developing DoctoralNet.com is in reaction to those difficulties and will, with adoption, increase graduation rates for those working towards a PhD or other type of doctoral degree.  You can follow DoctoralNet on twitter, facebook or Google +.

Dr James also specializes in action research and has used that transformative process throughout the development of the techniques and strategies outlined herein.  Information about her other books can be found on the website for Sage Publishing.

A believer in the doctoral process as a rite of passage that releases the greatest potential in life, she reinvented her own life to move half way around the world from where she began.  Living in Ireland with her partner, their two dogs and a cat she authors nonfiction work on health and wellness on her personal website at ealanajames.com where you can connect with her as a writer, a consultant or speaker. 


Tracesea Slater, M.A. is the Director of Strategy at DoctoralNet.com where she works with Dr. James to raise graduation rates by assisting doctoral students to finish their dissertations. Tracesea’s main areas of research interest are education, disadvantaged populations and youth development. Her research experience includes work as the Manager of Research and Evaluation at a nonprofit serving homeless youth in Denver, CO. She also has done research and program evaluation in the fields of education and health care at a social research company. Tracesea’s academic experience includes work as a sociology instructor at the University of Colorado and Colorado Technical University.

HASH(0xa0aec5f4) out of 5 stars A text that no dissertation student should do without!!! 23 May 2014
By charaine lucas - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I have several texts on completing dissertations and its only when I opened 'Writing your Doctoral Dissertatioin and Thesis Faster,' did I realise how much I was missing!! It provides you with explanations on what each section should contain and common questions we all ask as doctoral students. What I loved was the opportunity to enjoy the process of completing a dissertation because I had the guidelines through this text on what it takes to produce an award winning dissertation. You won't regret it!!!

It is a rough and general guideline that can be advised to a bachelor level only and is not designed to really help graduates
