Dear Anil,
What you are doing is laudable. I had been to Kyoto, when I went to present a paper in Yokohoma for an international conference. In Kyoto, a professor from Ryukuku University had such a scheme. A few friends in the field of Operations and Quality Management used to meet monthly in a restaurant/pub and discuss recent issues in their field. I attended one such and had given a brief presentation there.
Rather than expect some senior members to start, I suggest that a person that is interested, and has some time, take the initiative and post a message or ring friends and see what support (s)he gets. Unless there are people pursuing PhDs who are interested in sharing their experiences, it will not work.

Dear Anil,
Thankyou for your support on this topic. We are collecting the questions that are asked while preparing and working for the doctoral programs.
Requesting all our readers to this thread, please share the concerns you have faced so far . We are working to get them resolved.
Thankyou everyone for your support.

From India, Mumbai

Here are a list of questions considered before enrolling for a Ph.D program. Ph.D when, where and how

What are the areas of concern that one faces during the research ? We are looking for the operational problems that arises during the program. Anil have shared a list of guides, so we take it as the first area, i.e, identifying the right guide for the project.

What are the next few areas ? How are the research guidance and finances managed by the researchers who are working, simultaneously in their jobs ?

What about the brain storming over the paper ? Does the geographic locations affect the learning from the peer-group and cohorts ? Such as, a fellow to AHRD , Ahmedabad might work in a full-time job based in Chennai. How would the study circle work for him ?

Approaches to the ideas need to be fueled with industry data? How is this data collected by the researcher, in question?

Sessions with the guides can be managed over the term-period. However, individual interaction remains second to none. How is this managed geographically ?

Please add on to the concerns . We are sure its far beyond what have been listed so far.

When I was working in industry, I knew a couple of people who pursued PhD in the part-time mode. They did research in their own technical field and their degree was valued.
While searching for any information on the status of distance learning PhD holders in industry, I came across this paper
Please also see <link outdated-removed> ( Search On Cite | Search On Google ) to find out why distance learning degrees are not valued as much as full-time or part-time degrees.
The advancement in technology and conducting webinars etc should alleviate some of the disadvantages of the distance mode. May be CiteHr can think how it can help.

Respected Sir,

I buy that there is a big difference between Distance and Regular study and they have their own values in our Education System, but we still having this ‘Distance Study’ option for Aspirants, and it automatically defines the purpose and value of it.

I already have explained the same here at length in past why we having this Distance Study option and what students need to do and what need to be accepted by us (Education and Industrial System) but again I wanna say if one believe that Distance PHD has no value and our Industrial System is not gonna accept it and we can’t be benefited then why these are still being offered to students/aspirants and not being asked the respective Universities about it.


This (Education) is a Noble profession and we must not treat it like a “Business” only and need to raise questions on it bcz the aspirants /students who wants to appear for PHD or dreamed about it but are not able to study regular bcz of whatever reason, shouldn’t be cheated like this.

Education Authority and recognized Universities who are agreed and offering these facilities to students, are responsible for this and i believe are well familiar with our this concern.

Second, I would like to have response from the people who can claim that they are happy with it and able to see the future benefits or are being offered opportunities.

Dear Anil,
Whether we like it or not Education has become a profitable business and many institutions are there to make money rather than care for their students. Offering post graduate degrees, including by reasearch, is no different. The number of students that seek help with their projects at CiteHR is a true indication of the difficulties that students face.
Even abroad, there are many institutions whose students do not get the same recognition as the Ivy League institutions in the States or the Elite Universities in the UK. It's all to do with how the market views these institutions.
No doubt we need to question what is going on; but I doubt whether we will get satisfactory answers.

From United Kingdom
Accepted Sir and also do understand this, therefore, I said we must not allow it and need to raise our voice.
Until we object instead of saying that we not gonna response of our voice and on our questions or no need to do that, we will never got our answers. And I agree with you that this place (CiteHR) can help a lot to the students on their project work and doing so no doubt and we all know that too. But the questions about DISTANCE PHD whether it is worth pursuing or not is need to be accepted by all of us.
I still believe hard work, sincere efforts of students, support (by CiteHR, Seniors/Mentors/colleagues/ Friends and Family) and TIME can do a lot. Student who already are doing their research work (by Distance Education) ; can show this world the same.
I wish for them and waiting for their response too.

If students of PhD by distance learning are really keen to enhance their knowledge and contacts, they should be prepared to spend money and attend international conferences in their field. I was fortunmate that i was pursuing my research interests through part-time mode, as a full-time lecturer; and was partly financed by the university to attend conferences. The contacts that I was able to estalish helped me immensely (I was offered the position on a journals Advisory Board and then became the Book Review Editor, and finally became the Regional Advisor, India, for them). It gave me the necessary contacts to enhance my knowledge as well as gave me contacts to conduct seminars/workshops.
