Summary This chapter considers the tension between candidates being ‘disciplined in the discipline of the discipline’ and producing significant original knowledge to earn their doctorate. That is, learning about the disciplinary boundaries within which their doctorates are conducted, and learning how to ‘push’ those boundaries with sufficient originality in order to be ‘doctored’. For the purposes of this chapter, ‘doctoral work’ embraces all those forms of work and their workers that contribute to doctoral process. Supervisors (advisers) and candidates (students) are the obvious workers, but then there are those whose work it is to support doctoral work; in particular, administrators, counsellors, postgraduate students’ associations, and those ‘scholarly friends’ the librarians.
