bookdown: Authoring Books and Technical Documents with R Markdown presents a much easier way to write books and technical publications than traditional tools such as LaTeX and Word. The bookdown package inherits the simplicity of syntax and flexibility for data analysis from R Markdown, and extends R Markdown for technical writing, so that you can make better use of document elements such as figures, tables, equations, theorems, citations, and references. Similar to LaTeX, you can number and cross-reference these elements with bookdown. Your document can even include live examples so readers can interact with them while reading the book. The book can be rendered to multiple output formats, including LaTeX/PDF, HTML, EPUB, and Word, thus making it easy to put your documents online. The style and theme of these output formats can be customized. We used books and R primarily for examples in this book, but bookdown is not only for books or R. Most features introduced in this book also apply to other types of publications: journal papers, reports, dissertations, course handouts, study notes, and even novels. You do not have to use R, either. Other choices of computing languages include Python, C, C++, SQL, Bash, Stan, JavaScript, and so on, although R is best supported. You can also leave out computing, for example, to write a fiction. This book itself is an example of publishing with bookdown and R Markdown, and its source is fully available on GitHub.

Research shows that five strategies correlate with the successful completion of a dissertation: establishing a consistent writing routine; working with a support group; consulting your advisor; understanding your committee's expectations; and setting a realistic and timely schedule Building on these insights, this book is for anyone who needs help in preparing for, organizing, planning, scheduling, and writing the longest sustained writing project they have encountered, particularly if he or she is not receiving sufficient guidance about the process, but also for anyone looking to boost his or her writing productivity. The author uncovers much tacit knowledge, provides advice on working with dissertation advisors and committee members, presents proven techniques for the prewriting and writing stages of the dissertation, sets out a system for keeping on schedule, and advocates enlisting peer support. This book presents a system of straightforward and proven techniques that are used by productive writers, and applies them to the dissertation process. In particular, it promotes the concept of writing networks - whether writing partners or groups - to ensure that writing does not become an isolated and tortured process, while not hiding the need for persistence and sustained effort. This book is intended for graduate students and their advisers in the social sciences, the humanities, and professional fields. It can further serve as a textbook for either informal writing groups led by students or for formal writing seminars offered by departments or graduate colleges. The techniques described will help new faculty advice their students more effectively and even achieve greater fluency in their own writing.

Expert writing advice from the editor of the Boston Globe best-seller, The Writer's Home Companion Dissertation writers need strong, practical advice, as well as someone to assure them that their struggles aren't unique. Joan Bolker, midwife to more than one hundred dissertations and co-founder of the Harvard Writing Center, offers invaluable suggestions for the graduate-student writer. Using positive reinforcement, she begins by reminding thesis writers that being able to devote themselves to a project that truly interests them can be a pleasurable adventure. She encourages them to pay close attention to their writing method in order to discover their individual work strategies that promote productivity; to stop feeling fearful that they may disappoint their advisors or family members; and to tailor their theses to their own writing style and personality needs. Using field-tested strategies she assists the student through the entire thesis-writing process, offering advice on choosing a topic and an advisor, on disciplining one's self to work at least fifteen minutes each day; setting short-term deadlines, on revising and defing the thesis, and on life and publication after the dissertation. Bolker makes writing the dissertation an enjoyable challenge.

Getting a PhD in Law is a unique guide to obtaining the degree of Doctor of Philosophy of Law in the UK. While there is a wide range of study guides for PhD students in the social sciences and other science-based disciplines, there is very little information available on the process of obtaining a PhD in law. Research degrees in law share some attributes with those in related disciplines such as the humanities and social sciences. However, legal methodology and the place of the PhD in law in the young lawyer's career create unique challenges that have not been addressed by existing guides. Getting a PhD in Law fills this clear gap in the market, providing an accessible guide to the PhD process from topic selection to thesis publication. This readable and informative guide draws on interviews and case studies with PhD students, supervisors and examiners. Getting a PhD in Law will be essential reading for the growing numbers of PhD students in the UK's many law schools-and those internationally who wish to learn from UK best practice.

Against my better judgment, I found myself falling in love with the people in this book. I was reminded of the mediaeval 'scholares vagantes' (wandering scholars) with Peggy like a modern day tour guide whose itinerary was to have us travel from place to place, teacher to teacher, seeking wisdoms. - DAVID EPSTON, MSW, Co-founder, Narrative Therapy, . From the foreword. This is a breakthrough book. It offers teachers and students in human service work a way to transcend classroom walls (and mindsets) by adding the fifth dimension of the World Wide Web. Any teacher, any student of relationship therapy will be inspired by the many examples of the effect of "learning on a cloud" that Sax puts into her spacecraft of a delicious, lively book. - LYNN HOFFMAN, LICSW, Author, Exchanging Voices: A collaborative approach to family therapy; Family Therapy: An Intimate Journey Peggy Sax provides a model to aspire to of how online learning platforms can be used to enrich systematic learning. I know of no better account of how to teach and to learn therapeutic practice in the era of online learning. Without being taught in any didactic or pedantic way, you cannot help but find yourself responding, reflecting and learning. - JOHN WINSLADE, PHD, Coordinator of Educational Counseling Program, Dept of Educational Psychology & Counseling, California State University San Bernardino One does not 'read' so much as 'engage' with the pages of this book, positioning the reader as an active participant in the learning process. As a newer instructor, I was inspired to expand upon my collaborative processes in the classroom, through the increased use of technology and dialogue between students, practitioners and consumers. As a student, it is a rare experience to read a text that simultaneously introduces and embodies the theoretical framework that it espouses. - BETH PRULLAGE, LICSW, Doctoral Candidate, Simmons College School of Social Work, Adjunct Faculty, Simmons College SSW and Smith College SSW As a teacher I was engaged from the first page in reflecting on extending my own teaching practices. I am left with all this lovely space to play with the ideas Peggy and her students have so generously offered. - AILEEN CHESHIRE, M.COUNS., Counselling Co-ordinator, Bachelor of Social Practice, Unitec, Auckland, New Zealand Peggy Sax's book incited my imagination to look at my "growing edge" as a teacher-practitioner, inspiring me to review the principles and beliefs I hold dear and to reflect on the congruency between the cherished values of Narrative Therapy and the values and purposes expressed in the teaching relationship. - MARTA CAMPILLO, MA, Director of Centro de Atencion Psicologica a la Familia AC, Xalapa Veracruz Mexico Peggy Sax, PhD, is in independent practice in Middlebury, Vermont, USA, as a licensed psychologist, consultant, workshop presenter and university instructor. An enthusiastic teacher, Peggy feels privileged for opportunities to share powerful stories of learnings from over 30 years of work with families and their children, teens, adults, couples, communities and students of all ages."
