Summary

The Essential Guide to Doing Your Research aims to arm students with the knowledge and skills needed to get them from 'clueless' to 'completed'. This is a highly accessible text which takes students through all aspects of conducting a research project, from conception to dissemination, with chapters sequenced to mirror research processes.In this fully revised and expanded edition, The Essential Guide retains the warmth, wit and grounded nature of the original, while incorporating even more features designed to successfully guide students through ins and outs of conducting their own research project.The Essential Guide addresses the key question students need to tackle in when conducting research, such as:- What is this thing called research and why do it?- How can I assure that my research project has integrity?- How to I develop a researchable question?- How do I construct a winning proposal?- What exactly is expected in a literature review?- What options are there in qualitative, quantitative, mixed and more purposive methodological designs?- Is it best to work with a sample, key informants, or a case?- What data collection options are there and how do I choose?- How should I work with my quantitative data?- What should I do with my qualitative data?- How in the world will I capture this on paper?This is an inspiring book full of down to earth advice, illuminating figure and diagrams and engaging real life examples. With this book acting as a personal mentor, a successfully completed research project is well within reach. Zina O'Leary is an applied social scientist and senior lecturer at the University of Western Sydney. She is the author of Researching Real-World Problems and The Social Science Jargon Buster.
