Despite the increasing popularity of doctoral education, many students do not complete their studies, and very little information is available about them. Understanding why some students consider that they do not want to, or cannot, continue with their studies is essential to reduce dropout rates and to improve the overall quality of doctoral programmes. This study focuses on the motives students give for considering dropping out of their doctoral degree. Participants were 724 social sciences doctoral students from 56 Spanish universities, who responded to a questionnaire containing doctoral degree conditions questions and an open-ended question on motives for dropping out. Results showed th

This study approaches early researchers’ identity positions from a self-dialogical perspective and their experiences when they encountered significantly events in research over their initial trajectory. Adopting phenomenographic and narrative perspectives, the purpose of this paper is to identify and describe the researchers’ identity positions that can be inferred from the significant experiences that five social science researchers have experienced over the beginning periods of their careers. The data collection was carried out using a combination of instruments, including a Journey Plot, three in-depth, semi-structured interviews, and Elicitation cards. Results showed that seven researche

Doctoral trajectory is an emotionally and intellectually intensive process during which doctoral students face with a wide range of experiences. The aim of this study was to explore what were the most significant positive and negative events that doctoral students experience at different moments of their doctoral trajectory, and how these events were related to different variables such as age, gender, discipline, children or full/partial doctoral studies enrolment. We used a cross-sectional interpretative design combining mixed method data analysis.

La formación doctoral de los futuros investigadores está cambiando en los últimos años. Actualmente, el número de estudiantes de doctorado ha aumentado y también lo han hecho las exigencias para su graduación; por ello, estos estudiantes necesitan desarrollar competencias que les permitan participar activamente en el ámbito científico-académico. Nuestro estudio analizó los eventos más significativos a los que se enfrentan los estudiantes de doctorado (n=14) durante el primer año de sus estudios, así como las habilidades que consideran que desarrollan y las relaciones entre ambos. La información se recopiló mediante diferentes instrumentos (multimodal): un Journey Plot y una entrevista semi-e

Álvarez, M., Castelló, M., Elexpuru, I., Villardón, L., Yániz, C. (submitted). Why research is perfo

There is virtually no knowledge regarding what research means for researchers in training in the Spanish context. This study has a twofold goal: to analyze the conceptions of PhD students in the Social Sciences regarding research, and the relations of those conceptions with several relevant variables in the process of researcher training. 1082 students from 56 Spanish universities participated in this study. They answered a questionnaire on conceptions, commitment, interest for research, relationship with the scientific community, and stress. PhD students conceptualize research mainly as a process oriented activity both towards making a contribution to the community and towards personal deve

El proceso que implica la culminación de los estudios de doctorado supone un gran desafío incluso para aquellos estudiantes muy preparados con excelente bagaje académico. Ello es así porque dicho proceso pone en juego competencias de alto nivel cognitivo, personal y emocional e implica una importante exposición a situaciones de estrés que acompañan la progresiva participación de los doctrandos en la comunidad científica y disciplinar de referencia.
