Overview

A book for first-time researchers which addresses the problems and anxieties they themselves define as most important: Transforming the knowledge gained during research into written form, managing time, organizing the information they collect and create, transforming information from written sources into usable knowledge, and coping with feelings of isolation and loss of confidence. Strangely enough, these problems have not so far been the main focus of any text designed to help researchers. This book makes up for the omission: it is based on experience - the experience of the author in working with students who are tackling research for the first time, and that of students themselves - and it presents the experience by way of examples from real projects. Readers have the opportunity of answering questions about their own research, and on the basis of their answers they are helped in making decisions that will help them to cope successfully with the key problems, and to deliver an end product that does justice to their efforts.
