New Feature provides unbiased, dependable information about graduate school from relevant perspectives

“Current awareness is a vital part of academic study that extends well beyond research,” said Jeff Lang, GradShare™’s Community Manager. “The GradShare Blogs provide an unbiased platform where students can get reliable information from different points of view. This is an ideal place to stay informed and get advice on completing a degree.”

In the tradition of this open community, the GradShare™ Blogs are available for free and give insight on various topics relevant to all graduate students, across institutions and subjects – this includes advice on the best research tools, stories from schools around the academe and analysis of the current news affecting graduate students. Bloggers include popular authors, graduate student leaders, and everyday students.

“Gradshare, with its free expert advice, blogs, and community discussions allows us to continue to celebrate the joy of the journey rather than the anguish of the argument in academic and dissertation writing,” said William Waters, co-author of Destination Dissertation and charter member of the GradShare™ Blogs.
