Overview

"Exemplary research is often described as an orderly process, beginning with a precise definition of research questions, continuing with systematic data collection, and ending with writing a concise research report based on a clear, theoretical perspective. Experienced researchers know that this happens rarely, and if it does, it may well lead to rigid text reporting of a dull result. Actual research often means investigation of poorly known topics, which requires an ability to deal with surprising findings and unexpected events. In other words, research requires creativity and craftsmanship.The art of science consists of twelve chapters covering important aspects of the research process and discussing the role of the researcher. The book also demonstrates the advantages of involving practitioners as co-producers of meaningful and usable knowledge."
