Until recently, international students who considered studying psychology in the United States have had few resources available to them. This is significant given that each year the United States hosts more than half a million international students, and psychology is one of the most popular majors. In response, the American Psychological Association of Graduate Students (APAGS) has brought together a remarkable group of psychologist and international student contributors who share their unique expertise and insights in this volume. This book offers superb expert guidance on graduate study in psychology, specifically tailored for international students. It weighs the pros and cons of studying psychology in the United States and provides direction on how to find university resources geared toward international students, finance one's education, handle visa and work permit matters, cultural considerations, mentoring relationships, academic development, obtain internships and training, and whether to pursue employment in the United States or abroad, as well as other critical professional development issues.

Ante la importancia de la educación como base de la competitividad en una economía basada en el conocimiento, las universidades han incrementado su atención en la calidad de sus programas de doctorado. Sin embargo, se aprecia que aún son escasas las instituciones educativas que tienen en su programa, una asignatura destinada a cómo escribir y publicar una tesis doctoral. Este libro es el resultado de varios años de experiencia en supervisión de tesis doctorales en programas de diversas universidades. Los contenidos y la estructuración de los mismos han sido contrastados con alumnos y académicos de varios países. Por ende, se ofrece una guía práctica que orienta la motivación de las personas interesadas en iniciar una carrera académica, y que para ello, requieren elaborar una tesis doctoral. Cuando se escribe una tesis se deben desarrollar nuevas formas de conceptualizar las ideas y traducirlas a una correcta comunicación oral y escrita. Por tanto, el libro ofrece algunas reglas –no explícitas– de la investigación y escritura académica. Así, el libro constituye un recurso ineludible para las personas que necesitan presentar una propuesta doctoral, convertirla en tesis, y posteriormente, en artículos publicables en revistas científicas. El presente libro trata de responder a las preguntas que cualquier doctorando se formula a sí mismo: ¿Por dónde empiezo para elaborar mi propuesta doctoral? ¿Cómo elijo a mi director de tesis? ¿Qué elementos debo controlar para que no limiten mi trabajo? ¿Cómo desarrollo la propuesta en tesis doctoral? ¿Qué criterios se usarán para evaluar mi tesis? ¿Cuánto tiempo es el adecuado para elaborar mi tesis? En los capítulos iniciales se exploran los diferentes tipos de tesis doctorales que se encuentran en el panorama académico. Asimismo, se analizan los aspectos personales y temas previos a la planificación del trabajo del doctorando. Posteriormente, se detallan las etapas de la elaboración y presentación de la propuesta, así como los principales criterios de valoración de la misma. En los siguientes capítulos se revisan los principios básicos de redacción científica así como la estructura y características de los diversos componentes de la tesis, y también se ofrecen pautas para su presentación oral y escrita. Y en el capítulo final se exponen los principales requisitos que debe cumplir el doctorando para que pueda publicar su tesis como un artículo o artículos en revistas científicas.
