Abstract: 在學術研究生涯中找到合適的指導教授對學生研究力養成及學位論文的品質至關重要,故應當正視尋求指導教授策略對指導關係形成及過程之影響。
Identifying the most appropriate advisor in one's academic research career is fundamental to the development of a student's research capacity and the quality of a thesis; therefore, the implications of strategies employed to engage an advisor on the formation and process of the mentoring relationship may warrant examination. In the past, few domestic scholars have conducted studies targeting both sides of the thesis advising process, with the majority of subjects being full time students and students from extended-education programs, suggesting potential for investigation.

This study employs qualitative methodologies such as in-depth interviews, participant observation, and Documentary analysis to investigate the formation of the supervisory relationship between master's students and their advisors, major factors in their selection of one another, and strategies of both parties in their pursuit, and to identify the key procedures of thesis advising so as to clarify the interaction aspects throughout the advising process. The results of this study identified that: First, prior to the formation of the relationship, the compatibility of research topics and personal expertise was of mutual significance, with the advisor taking into account whether or not the student had taken his course as a factor of critical consideration; second, the lack of disclosure of available adviserships resulted in asymmetric information that hindered the formation of advisory relationships; and lastly, administrative support served as a significant role in the advisory relationship.

The framework of this study differs from the previous stages of advising by providing an integrated advising process that incorporates the key processes of thesis advising with reference to professors, students, and administrators. Such suggestions would thus facilitate professors to effectively manage students' thesis progress, provides strategies for students in search of advising, and helps administrators to manage and assist students' learning processes to reduce the number of student suspensions and withdrawals, thereby improving learning quality and outcomes.
