Proposals for SIGs should be made to Alistair.McCulloch@unisa.edu.au by 22 November 2013. A small honorarium is available to aid the establishment of up to 3 additional SIGs. A successful doctoral writing SIG is already in operation.
CALL FOR PAPERS QPR brings together scholars, practitioners, policy-makers, and managers and university leaders involved in the development and delivery of doctoral education.
To celebrate our third decade we return to our roots by focusing on the broad theme of quality in the supervision and management of postgraduate research degrees. The conference continues the theme established in the 1st QPR conference in 1994, where the focus was on student-supervisor interaction. However, in 2014, we move beyond that to address Quality throughout the postgraduate system.
Papers are therefore invited in areas including, but not limited to:

Please note that the conference organisers are actively seeking special editions of appropriate journals which would showcase papers from the conference.
