Enhancing ethical practice in doctoral thesis supervision

This study was the result of a collaborative research project involving experienced doctoral supervisors from Massey, Victoria and Waikato Universities. The research explored the complex ethical challenges facing students and staff who work together on doctoral research projects. Doctoral study has become more complex due to changing institutional and funding requirements that can put new pressures on doctoral candidates to complete in a timely manner. This has specific implications for international students. The research group explored new debates around ethical approaches that arise from feminist, postmodern, post-qualititative and indigenous research questions and was coordinated by Lise Claiborne (University of Waikato) and Assoc. Prof. Sue Cornforth (Victoria University of Wellington).

The work was published as a special issue of the journal Knowledge Cultures, 2013, volume 1, number 5
