At Copenhagen Business School Learning Lab we are currently making a cross
national comparative study of Ethics Codes and Formal Rules on Ph.D.
Supervision and Ph.D.-education at different European universities and
What is required of a Ph.D. dissertation? What qualifies a Ph.D.? What is
required of supervisors? What are the institutional requirements, when
If your institution has any white books/papers on such codes or rules, if
your institution follows any regulatory standards, such as Government's or
Research Councils' standards, we would like to hear from you.
The data that would be relevant for our comparative study is regulatory or
local institutional standards on:
1) Ph.D. quality / academic requirements
2) Ph.D. supervision / Ph.D.-programmes
3) requirements concerning the context for making a Ph.D.,
which could include any given number of counselling hours, ratio of
research/teaching/administration, or other kinds of supports and constraints
on employment conditions of Ph.D.s.

If you have suggestions for, whom to contact specifically at your
institution, or are familiar with practises at other institutions, we should
look into, please do not hesitate to send me an e-mail about where to look.
I hope you will be able to contribute to our study. The initial results will
be presented at an EDAMBA conference in Copenhagen in September this year
and will be available on our homepage at CBS Learning Lab:
