Navigating power in doctoral publishing: a data feminist approach

It has been quite a journey but my article on navigating power in doctoral publishing is finally out! I have been working on it for a few years now and I want to thank everyone who has been involved in the process. You can access a free copy online and the Author Accepted Manuscript is attached.

Doctoral education is often a journey of navigating power, such as those who give assistance or hindrance, so knowing who has it or who doesn’t is very important.

The article applies a data feminist lens using visual techniques to examine power in doctoral publishing by reflecting on my attempt to understand a rather straightforward question using publication data – to what extent do research students collaborate?

In doing so the article aims to provide both theoretical and practical guidance to doctoral students, supervisors and anyone else interested in examining and challenging power in knowledge production.

Time allowing I will share my R code books and data so that the approach can be easily replicated.
