In this introductory chapter we have covered the areas which we felt were important to get you started on your doctoral journey. We have explained what is meant by a professional doctorate and the standard and expectation of a doctoral level qualification, and a little about the history and aims of the professional doctorate. We have also outlined what you can expect to find in the rest of this book. We hope this will help you to decide if a professional doctorate is for you. In the next chapter we will begin to discuss how you might choose and frame your doctoral project.
