APAGS has launched a new e-mail discussion group to support students working on their dissertations. APAGS members at all stages of the dissertation process-from conception to completion-are encouraged to sign up to offer and garner advice from each other as well as invited psychologists and faculty members. Students can cover such topics as:

  • Choosing a topic and narrowing your focus.
  • Quantitative and qualitative methodologies.
  • Selecting appropriate statistical procedures.
  • Conducting a literature review.
  • Choosing and working with a dissertation chair and committee.
  • Handling differences of opinion between you and your chair.
  • Preparing for the proposal meeting and final defense.
  • Overcoming roadblocks and procrastination.
