The study will review the contents and forms of training in research publication (TIRP) provided for local doctoral students and determine if students aspiring to an academic career are prepared for publishing in international journals in future faculty positions. Adopting a multi-method approach, the study will take place in two stages. Stage 1 involves mainly interviews with students and supervisors to collect qualitative data relating to specific concerns and issues associated with the provision of TIRP offered by doctoral programmes at the seven universities. Drawing data collected in the interviews, Stage 2 involves a large-scale questionnaire survey to investigate in statistical terms the views of students and supervisors regarding existing TIRP.
