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.
