A discussion of the proposal-writing process includes generic information that applies to all research proposals as well as issues specific to the use of proposals in graduate education and funding agencies. Discussion covers ethics and research, common problems in proposal development, content considerations, qualitative research, style and form, and the oral presentation. Also covered is the securing of money for research and funding. Additionally, four specimen proposals are provided. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

"I was familiar with an earlier (3rd) version of this text. I thought it was an excellent resource for graduate students and faculty mentoring graduate student researchers and/or grant writers. I was equally impressed with the 5th edition of this text and have recommended it to all faculty in both of the departments in which I teach research courses. "
