Kia ora and Welcome to Thesislink 2017!

Ko te mutunga oranga, he tīmatatanga kaha!  Winning starts with beginning!

It’s the start of a new year and with the new year comes new beginnings, goals and aspirations. For Māori the koru or silver fern frond uncurling symbolises a new beginning, a new start or the spirit of rejuvenation.  So it seems appropriate to start the year off with this symbol.


This year we have lots of interesting blog posts lined up for you.  We begin next week with a post about doctoral oral exam surprises. This post will be followed with tips for transforming your published paper into a blog post.

At Thesislink we would love more feedback. In fact, there will be a couple of posts about feedback which will be posted in February. In the meantime, if you would like to write a blog post for Thesislink or have an idea you want us to write about please leave a comment.

Thanks to Hazel Abraham for the whakatauki /Māori proverb
