Dissertation proposals intimidate even the most advanced doctoral students. In this roundtable we will focus on strategies used (1) to generate dissertation topics and (2) to guide doctoral students throughout this process. Other related topics (e.g., advisor, type of dissertation, relevant topics, interplay between psychology and consumer research, etc.) will also be discussed.
