Editorial Reviews

Jon M. Engelhardt
This book is to preparing a dissertation what musical notations are to creating a symphony. The Dissertation Desk Reference provides ready access to plainly worded explanations and well-crafted examples that guide nascent scholars and assist dissertation advisors. The Dissertation Desk Reference is an ideal resource for pro-seminars where doctoral candidates explore the organization and writing of the dissertation. It specifically addresses the more traditional five-chapter dissertation format and equally supports less traditional dissertation formats.
Sally J. Zepeda
In The Dissertation Desk Reference, Calabrese offers a resource that serves as a safe harbor for doctoral students embarking on the journey of writing a dissertation. With examples to illustrate the key components of the dissertation as well as checklists to guide the writer, this is a definitive resource for the doctoral student and the major professor. I highly recommend this book as requisite reading.
Bill Phillips
A must-read for anyone who wants to complete a doctorate. This wonderfully inspiring work demystifies the dissertation process. All participants in Eastern Kentucky University's doctoral symposium will have to have this book!
Patti L. Chance
Every doctoral student and dissertation advisor should have this book in his/her library. Finally, a single reference that serves as a comprehensive guide to terminology and concepts commonly used when designing and writing dissertation research! The book is user-friendly, with terms organized alphabetically (with cross-references). Not only are terms defined, but Raymond L. Calabrese also provides examples of how these terms are used and applied in actual dissertations.
