Every PhD experience is an experience in itself and a story can be written about each one of them. I have heard of good supervisors and I have heard of bad supervisors and I have also heard of good supervisors turn bad and vice versa. You need to pick up the pulse of your supervisor and know how to manipulate the things in your favour. You need to just keep a few things in mind to keep the ball rolling:

Consequently what happens is that writers, especially researchers tend to imply the wrong meaning of the sentence than what it actually should.
I want to start by saying that PhD students can make a great impact by data sharing. It isn’t easy though as it requires great amount of data management skills. Data is compressed form of hard work and hence is very useful valuable. If it is not exploited to its best capacity, it is injustice to the work. It can be used for practice, publications and grants and researchers should make its best use. Here it is to understand how,

When your examiner reads your thesis, the abstract o your thesis is the first thing that he is going to read. Whatever expectations he forms about your research are on the basis of the abstract.
