Last week I was in Valencia as a member of a doctoral thesis tribunal at the Universidad Politécnica de Valencia. Again, the doctoral thesis was structured into three scientific papers. In my opinion, it’s an interesting doctoral thesis because of allowing us to show students that the amount is not important, but the quality of the contributions they make. I attach the reference of the doctoral thesis and their published papers:

  • Title: Validation of the scales of Job Diagnostic Survey (JDS) applied to university educational environments
  • PhD Candidate: Martha Giraldo O’Meara
  • Advisors: Juan A. Marín García and Mónica martínez Gómez
  • Place and Date: Universidad Politécnica de Valencia, Friday March 14th,  2014.
