There's a good book by Barbara Allen on supervision of research students. Could be useful as a resource.

Ireland's National Academy for the Integration of Research, Teaching and Learning (NAIRTL) funded a major inter-institutional project between 2008 and 2012 to develop strategies for optimised support for supervisors of research students. This unique project involved six Irish Higher Education institutions and has culminated in the creation of a new interactive publication which summarises the experiences of the participating institutions, as well as outlining a framework for supervisor support and providing related resources and tools. It is intended that this information may be of use to any institutions interested in developing their own supports for research supervisors, and ultimately will be of benefit to the supervisors themselves and, of course, their students.
