Overview

An invaluable tool for anyone

carrying out a research project

We all learn to do research by actually doing it,

but a great deal of time and effort can be wasted

and goodwill dissipated by inadequate preparation.

This book provides beginner researchers

with the tools to do the job, to help them avoid

some of the pitfalls and time-wasting false trails,

and to establish good research habits. It takes

researchers from the stage of choosing a topic

through to the production of a well-planned,

methodologically sound, and well-written final

report or thesis on time. It is written in plain

English and makes no assumptions about previous

knowledge.

This new edition of Doing Your Research

Project includes:

  • Coverage of latest techniques such as

    grounded theory

  • A new chapter on ethics
  • Increased examples from health studies
  • New referencing, library searching, and

    literature review chapters

  • Completely updated references throughout

This book serves as a guide to good practice for

beginner researchers in any discipline embarking

on undergraduate or postgraduate study, and

for professionals in such fields as social science,

education, and health.

Judith Bell holds the post of special professor in

the School of Continuing Education at the University

of Nottingham, United Kingdom.
