    MANCOVA statistics: Query 

    I am trying to conduct repeated measures MANCOVA in SPSS software, where I need to measure my dependent variable at 4 periods of time (years). Also, the dependent variable at each year is related with 2 independent variables. To be honest, it is a very complicated for me, I am unable to understand the concept of MANCOVA and running it on SPSS is the icing at the top. Any help regarding this would be really appreciated.

    Editor for APA formatting of my thesis 

    Research is difficult, true, but formatting makes me run for the hills! I am currently in 3rd year of my EdD programme and finding it really difficult to format my thesis according to the APA guidelines. I have tried doing it myself, I have tried influencing my friends into doing it, I have ‘begged’ my advisor to help me out, but well ‘she’s busy’ and so are my friends. So, I am trying to look for editors that can solve my problem, but again, whom should I trust? I would really appreciate if someone could refer an editing service that is ethical and reliable.

      Hey David, I can understand what you must be going through. My thesis even got rejected due to formatting issues. I had to format my thesis in MLA format and it was completely out of my hand. So I too started looking for a formatting service. There are tons available online! But, you need to be aware of fabricated companies. I opted for online formatting services of 24×7 Editing and it turned out to be great! They took 3 days and I was good to go! I am sure they have editors who can format your document in several writing styles. You can contact them at: contact@24x7editing.com

      Hey, why don’t you opt for the formatting services of “Edit n Publish”? Let me share with you my experience. A year back, I was stuck with my thesis due to poor layout and structure. My university was quite strict about the thesis presentation. The deadline to submit my thesis was close that I had no option, but to find an editor. What did I found? Countless formatting and editing websites on the internet! Identifying a genuine one was a task in itself. Like you, I didn’t trust these online services. What if they took my money and didn’t do the proper work?
      Here’s what I did, I consulted my seniors! You see, like so many online services, there are a lot of stuck ups like us too! So, I consulted with my seniors who also opted for editing or formatting services. That’s what led me to Edit n Publish and this is me advising you to trust your thesis with them! They formatted my thesis on time and there prices were reasonable too depending on the length of your thesis. I would highly recommend them. You can check out their website to know more: http://www.editnpublish.com/

      @robertmaxeey Whom should I contact in Edit n Publish? How many days will they take to complete my work? And what if they didn’t do my work properly? Will they refund my money?

    PhD stress? Sit down and relax! 

    Everybody makes mistakes. Things go wrong at times. After all we are all humans!
    Sometimes the mistake is obvious and you recognize it easily. But sometimes, the solution is not so apparent. What do you do then? give up? repeat the same steps?


    Focus all your attention and think! This can be particularly difficult under stress and you may be tempted to waste your time away, but this is what you need to do. Slow down, spend some time with the problem and get back in action.


    Don’t rush for the solution that just came to your mind. This solution may only be one of the possibilities. There may be a good 2nd option, or a third! Immediately getting into action with the first possible solution may not be such a good idea however tempting it may seem.

    Happy researching fellow members!

      David, I am really stuck. I prepared my proposal and got it accepted from my supervisor. I mentioned i will collect primary data through a survey. Now i am not able to carry out that survey with HR managers since I am not getting access to such people. What do i do?? Seems like I’m back to square one!

        Nathaniel, don’t worry. You are not the only one encountering this issue. It is not uncommon to face such hurdles. Important is that you resolve it and don’t treat it as a roadblock.
        Prepare an alternative strategy that suits the proposed research objectives and make sure that the plan is well thought and workable. With a concrete plan in hand, see your supervisor. Explain to your supervisor about all the efforts you made to carry on as planned and why certain things could not work out. I am sure your supervisor is rational and understands how things work.
        Don’t panic and get down to work!
