Doing a PhD: A Librarian’s Perspective

Writing a PhD thesis is a different writing exercise to writing a journal article, book or book chapter.
In this guest post Dr Eva Hornung shares her insights on the process, having completed writing a 95,000 word thesis - and that word count excludes appendices. According to Eva writing that many words is not a problem.  The challenge is in not being repetitive, rather to be precise and keep the reader engaged - as in the case with all writing really.  If you want more information about the process from Eva, she is happy to be contacted by e-mail.
