Incubation: The effects of interruption timing and length on problem solution and quality of problem processing (Doctoral dissertation, University of Oregon, 1972).
What students may expect of each other, and the principles that form the basis of what the University expects of students, are articulated in the Community Creed, Vanderbilt’s social honor code. The Student Handbook is designed to acquaint students with the specifics of the standards expected of them as members of University community. The policies and regulations delineated in the handbook apply to all students enrolled at Vanderbilt.
The Thesis and Dissertation Handbook will walk students through the steps of how to format their manuscript, how to format the manuscript into a PDF with embedded fonts and how to submit their formatted PDF to the OhioLINK ETD database. It is recommended that students download a copy of this document and have it near them when formatting and uploading their manuscript to the OhioLINK ETD database. Another important document to review before beginning this process is the OhioLINK ETD FAQ located within the OhioLINK ETD database and linked below. Additional documents are listed below that will assist with this process.
The way in which this type of assessment is organised will vary from institution to institution and course to course. It is important that you familiarise yourself with the particular arrangements for your degree. Look for a module handbook which sets out these requirements and how you are allocated a dissertation tutor or supervisor. Your supervisor and any handbooks that are produced are excellent sources of information and support and will help you understand how the dissertation process works.
The following checklist will start you on the dissertation journey, start planning and also clarify what is expected of you
Vanessa R. Panfil received her Ph.D. in Criminal Justice from the University at Albany and is currently a post-doctoral associate in the School of Criminal Justice at Rutgers University (Newark, NJ). Her research explores how gender and sexuality shape individuals’ experiences with gangs, crime, victimization, and the criminal and juvenile justice systems. For her dissertation, she designed and conducted a partially ethnographic, in-depth interview study of self-identified gay gang members, in order to analyze the complex relationships between the commission of crime and/or gang membership and the construction of gay and masculine identities. Her published and forthcoming works from that line of inquiry explicitly challenge existing cultural and criminological assumptions regarding gay men. Other forthcoming papers focus on the gendered experiences of both female and male gang members, as well as the promise of qualitative methods for studying queer populations and contributing to criminological theory. She also highly values and has experience with program evaluation. Finally, for over ten years, she has volunteered for LGBTQ advocacy organizations, including those that provide services to at-risk youth and those that seek to improve the quality of life for students, staff, and faculty in higher education.
Students may be accountable to criminal and/or civil authorities as well as to the University for acts that constitute violations of law and of University policies and regulations. Students investigated for alleged violations of these policies and regulations are subject to University accountability proceedings delineated in this Handbook while criminal or civil proceedings regarding the same conduct are pending. Students in these circumstances may not challenge the University’s accountability process on the grounds that criminal charges or civil actions regarding the same incident are pending, may be initiated, or have been terminated, dismissed, reduced, or not yet adjudicated. When appropriate, the University may refer matters to federal, state, and local authorities for prosecution.
