Alle productspecificaties


Challenging the formality and idealized settings of conventional methods teaching and opting instead for a real world approach to social research this book offers frank, practical advice designed to empower students and researchers alike.

Theoretically robust and with an exhaustive coverage of key methodologies and methods the title establishes the cornerstones of social research. Examples reflect research conducted inside and outside formal university settings and range from the extremes of war torn countries to the complexities of school classrooms.

Supported by a wealth of learning features and tools the textbook and website include:

· Video top tips

· Podcasts

· Full text journal articles

· Interviews with researchers conducting field research

· Links to external websites and blogs

· Student exercises

· Real world case studies


This research book succinctly presents research in a logical and tangible way that would enable students to engage with the practical application of the research process in an informed way. It is written in a facilitative way that endears the reader to its style, making it an invaluable resource to undergraduate students.' -- Neal Cook This is an easy to follow, practical guide to entering the field of social research. Students will love this introduction, which covers key themes of research without getting bogged down in academic jargon' -- Brady Wagoner A well-written book that highlights the different kinds of challenges and risks experienced by researchers and provides practical solutions. It includes valuable tools, strategies and tactics for doing research and overcoming the taken-for-granted difficulties that may potentially affect the viability of any research project' -- Dr Sizwe Phakathi A well-written, easy to read and very practical handbook to guide taught Masters students through all the key stages of their dissertation work' -- Ian Charity This book provides such an extensive overview of how to plan, execute and write-up a research project that it will be invaluable for post-graduate students across the humanities. It is rich in detail, comprehensive in coverage and the addition of many real-life examples makes this book extremely accessible for students, teachers and researchers alike' -- Dr Rory Pilossof 'This textbook enables the student-researcher to learn very practical skills to prepare for the research journey. Providing a clear 'how to' guide from research design, ethics, data collection and analysis through to presenting research data, much of what you need to know is here. Accessible and informative, this textbook will inspire students to get into the field and become researchers' -- Teela Sanders 'I am very impressed by the format of the book and the learning features. The practical step-by-step approach is better than any of the texts we currently use, and the book contains a valuable chapter on risk evaluation in the field, so often absent in research textbooks' -- Barry Turner
