Great book for computer science research. A little basic in places but is highly recommended as an introductory resource.
I use this book in my course in empirical research methods in computer science and information systems. The book is very well written, easy to understand and comprehensive. Very satisfied.
One of the few computing-specific methodology books. The book is rather IS-oriented than computing in general.
A marvelous book to teach students in the field of Information Systems and even helpful for research.
This is an excellent book. It has been adopted for the entire 2nd year of the degree. I'm teaching one of the pathway classes and I'm extremely impressed with the material and how it has been put together. It is excellent for the 2nd years but in fact more academically mature students could benefit from it too. We're hoping that it will see our 2nd year through their project next year. I'm sure it can support them. I can recommend it most highly.
Thank you for sending it so quickly!
I like this text very much as it has a nice balance between the practical advice students need and the theoretical underpinning that, ideally, they should be engaging with.
Weakest chapter for me is the one on Qualitative Data Analysis - I think much more time is required to make real sense of this topic.
Very good material, especially for IT students who are preparing to undertake research.
Excellent book. Book guides students in choosing a research topic, investigating using appropriate methods and presenting findings.
The book is a good starting point to give students an overview of several research methods in the IS discipline. For a more detailed view on each method further research has to be conducted. The chapter "Reviewing the literature" for example summarizes the literature review, but it does not cover the "systematic literature review".
A good, clear informative text for the subject focused on the area which will be of great assistance to the students.
Level a bit too high for most of our undergraduates so we use it as supplemental.
Very useful for staff. Will recommend it to colleagues and library.
Book can be used as supplemental material for post-graduate students. This book is an excellent tool to assist students with an understanding of research - what it is, where to begin, how to do it, what to use when.
This book provides a nice introduction to research methodologies in IS research. It is especially recommended for PhD courses in IS that have a broad focus on methodologies.
This primary focus of this book is qualitative research and information systems in a social science context. It is therefore particularly appropriate for my course.
It is probably less useful to computer science students where the focus is more on quantitatively based engineering research projects.
I consider the book highly suitable to introduce students to the topic of research in information systems. It is very clearly written and covers essential points (including epistemology and ethics) and methods. It is suitable for giving overview, for further information, it is necessary to consult further literature. I recommend it for advanced bachelor students or beginning master students.
