Quoted from “A Guide to Thesis Writing That Is a Guide to Life by Hua Hsu”

Browsing through my research blog that I used as desktop during my PhD studies, I rediscover this interesting article by author Hua Shu, which I wish to share it with you here.

After my graduation, I have also attempted to reflect on the purpose of writing in my series “Why write a thesis?” Published on SBI Learning Center.

My post-doc activities at Vietnam Hoc Institute will focus on building up a curriculum in Vietnamese studies to serve the Vietnamese learning community on issues related to publication and teaching ethics.

The Vietnam Ethic series is now under planning, in partnership with Globethics.net Publications, supported by Prof. Dr. Christoph Stückelberger, Founder and President, Dr Ignace Haaz, Managing Editor.

My contribution will be as volume editor of two titles: 1) Vietnam in transition, 30 years later… , followed by 2) Vietnam: Lessons for the 21st Century.

Wish me good luck!
