As a fourth year doctoral candidate, in addition to having completed comprehensive examinations and prospectus and working on the dissertation, my thoughts are also turning towards the job market and securing that first academic position. This purpose of this blog is to chronicle the trials and tribulations of completing my Ph.D. and finding that first job.

I'm for Sale

I was alerted to this a few weeks ago in a post that Trey Martindale made on his blog Teachable Moment (see So now Amazon sells “my” research articles).

This stood out to me because I recall in the year between my M.Ed. and my Ph.D. or during the first year of my Ph.D. I came across a site that the took Master's thesis and Doctoral dissertations that were deposited at the National Library of Canada and sold those for $20 or $50 each (without the knowledge or permission of the authors - granted when you submit your thesis or dissertation at most Canadian universities you sign a NLC form that says you give them blanket permission to do what they want with your work).

In any regard, apparently Amazon has one of my pieces as well - see Michael K. Barbour.
