For a PhD candidate entering graduate school, the first several weeks are exciting. Besides starting classes, the student must decide which professor’s group to join and which research project to work on. One word of advice here. Make sure the topic starts out focused on a specific research topic.

Seeing the Trees in the Forest
A vague, open ended research topic can be a lot of fun at first but can meander without producing much material for a research paper much less a thesis. My own experience is a good example. My professor departed for a sabbatical soon after I joined his group.

Pulling together years of research into a dissertation may seem a daunting task. But it needn’t be. If you can organize a scientific article, you can structure a dissertation.

Academic publishing as it is known in the United States is being compromised by a publishing waiver that authors are required to sign when writing for such scholarly journals as Scientific American, Nature, and others. Authors writing for Nature, for example, are required to sign a waiver that not only gives away any economic rights to their work, but also any moral rights. Those moral rights include proper credit for the article as well as protecting the work against any future alterations.
