I just wanted to drop you a quick note and let you know that, for the first time ever, I’ve put down my dissertation topic selection process into five steps, and shared them in a short ebook on Amazon.
You can get details here: Selecting a Dissertation Topic
I wrote this ebook because I realized that my three books on dissertation completion start later in the process. They each suppose that you have your topic and need some help with the process from there.
However, I know, too, that there is a certain group of people who are just beginning the process and may be stuck as far as how to decide on a topic.
Having coached a least a hundred, maybe more, graduate students on the subject of topic selection, I realize that this is a real need- and that there isn’t a lot of attention paid to this. Somehow, you’re supposed to just magically know how to come up with a good topic all on your own.
Which works great, if that works for you.
If not, I’d invite you to read and apply the 5 Steps method I outline in this book.
Taking the steps, and spending about 10-12 hours of focused time, and you’ll be able to come up with at least a few topics worth considering further.
The book is short, only about 25 pages, because it doesn’t need a lot of words to help you find a dissertation topic.
So if you’re struggling on trying to land on your topic, I think my 5 step method might help.
