What discipline-specific roles and responsibilities have to be met by you as the supervisor? 38 The context Multi-disciplinary doctorates If expectations of doctorates and patterns of doctoral studies vary between disciplines, the question then arises about what should be expected of doctorates on subjects that are multi-disciplinary? Clearly if supervisors have themselves undertaken multi-disciplinary doctorates and have examined them (or have colleagues who have examined them) then information is available from these sources.
Candidates who feel that consultation with their supervisor or other staff had been ineffective or that such consultation is inappropriate or inadvisable are able to take issues to the ombudsman, who will try and deal with them in strict confidence and only contact staff at the request of the research student. html If supervisors are unfortunate enough to experience a breakdown in their relationship with a candidate, it is important that they should be able to direct the latter towards an independent source of advice and, potentially, of mediation.
Indeed part of the definition of the doctorate has of course been to make an original contribution to knowledge and understanding within the candidate’s discipline. But different disciplines have different paradigms of research, which in turn are reflected in different conceptions of what constitutes an original contribution and in different ways of organising and conducting doctoral studies. So supervisors have always needed to be aware of the disciplinary context, particularly in so far as it relates to the criteria for what is appropriate as a research project and to their roles and responsibilities and those of candidates.
