"Over the last 5 to 10 years, competition for high profile research positions has become much more competitive. Consequently, although there is no substitute for an outstanding research record, as a researcher who is beginning your research career, you must also plan and work on a number of important  activities that complement your research record in order to optimise  your  research career."

by 30-year research veteran Prof. Alan Johnson

What we  need  to plan,  and  this  Guide outlines the major points we need to consider to formulate the  research career plan best for you.  This could be treated as a Mentoring Booklet for the researchers/practitioners who wants to pursue doctorate degree/joined the program/completed their doctorate or in the process of completing it.
