Editorial Reviews


"This book tackles one of the most daunting tasks that doctoral students face. By breaking down the proposal writing process in a manageable and thorough way, the book educates the student from beginning to end. It is a 'must read' for doctoral students--I would use it in all classes about the dissertation process and assign it to all doctoral students as soon as they start their program! It also will be valuable for general research methods classes at the graduate level and any classes leading up to the doctoral dissertation requirement. Students will benefit from the concrete examples that bring the process to life."--Jacqueline V. Lerner, PhD, Program in Applied Developmental Psychology, Boston College

"My eyes were starting to glass over late one night as I was trying to complete the required reading for a class--until I started reading this book. The straightforward writing style and examples were a breath of fresh air. Heck, I even chuckled out loud a few times. In sum, I went from 'My goodness, what have I gotten myself in for,' to 'Thank goodness, I can actually relate to this stuff!'"--Peter Wiernicki, first-year doctoral student in Educational Leadership, Johnson & Wales University, Providence, Rhode Island 

"Many students flounder in the process of writing a dissertation proposal. Terrell's book treats in depth what other works on writing a dissertation dispatch in a few paragraphs. He recognizes not only the importance but also the complexity of writing the problem statement and other elements of the proposal, and provides students with expert guidance in how to capture precisely a study's importance within a defined scope. Terrell's insights are wise and on target; students will find them to be of great value."--Steven D. Zink, PhD, Vice Chancellor, Nevada System of Higher Education

“This book demystifies the entire dissertation proposal process, and is particularly helpful in the area of considering and refining a research problem. A major strength is the way Terrell clarifies the process by analyzing numerous topics in terms of their problem statement, purpose statement, and research question."--Frederick J. Brigham, PhD, Special Education Program, George Mason University

"A valuable resource for my introductory research methods course. This text strikes the perfect balance between substance and practicality. It serves as an excellent supplement to the other required methods texts, and I intend to include it on the textbook list for all my future research courses."--Felice D. Billups, EdD, Professor, Educational Leadership Doctoral Program, Johnson & Wales University, Providence, Rhode Island 

“The style is accessible and conversational; perfect for apprehensive doctoral students who need a broad overview of the proposal process. I like the way the purpose statement is broken down into variables, participants, and location; this will be helpful to students.”--Susan Troncoso Skidmore, PhD, Department of Educational Leadership, Sam Houston State University

“Informative and easy to read. Terrell offers a succinct introduction to all the parts of a typical doctoral proposal--introduction, background literature review, and methods--and presents a range of examples for quantitative, qualitative, and mixed-methods approaches. The book provides a very useful perspective on different methodological approaches and how they fit into the doctoral proposal.”--Paul Vincent, PhD, Department of Physics, Astronomy, and Geosciences, Valdosta State University

​"I just sent an email to 73 of my advisees and dissertation chairs/committee members recommending they purchase Writing A Proposal For Your Dissertation. I plan to continue recommending the book to incoming students during each Residency weekend as a valuable resource. My doctoral students are going to benefit greatly! My committee members will benefit as well."--Kelly Brock-Simmons, PhD, College of Education, Brenau University
