Graduate School Advice and Resources

The Annual Review of Political Science.  A great place to start your work on a literature review for seminar papers.

Stephen Stearns’s advice for graduate students.  He’s a zoologist at Yale, but I think most of his advice is directly relevant to political science as well.

Greg Mankiw’s links to advice on graduate school.  Distinguished Harvard economist links to blog posts he thought offered good advice.

PS Online.  This is the journal of the American Political Science Association that focuses on issues relevant to the profession of political science academia.  The archived back-issues online are full of good articles on graduate classes, the dissertation, the job market, teaching, etc.
