Main description:

Carrying out a research project is a daunting task, presenting you with deadline anxieties, unfamiliar language and practical dilemmas. This book is a straightforward, user-friendly guide on how to manage your research project successfully - akin to having a tutor at your side.

Doing a Successful Research Project:

• offers an accessible introduction to qualitative and quantitative methods
• takes you through the entire research process from planning to write-up
• includes extensive real-life examples of good and bad research practice

The second edition of this no-nonsense textbook, containing further discussion of internet-based research methods, research ethics and more, provides students with the self-discipline and the confidence to conduct their own research projects, whatever discipline they are from, and also the understanding required to identify the advantages and disadvantages of different strategies.

Review quote:

"Clearly-written and well-organized, this book is an excellent, introductory text covering a broad scope of research methods for beginning students." – Gerardo Marti, L. Richardson King Associate Professor of Sociology, Davidson College, USA
