There was a reasonable match with (some of) the materail in a new course entitled : Research Organisation & Management being developed for new PG students.
I found this a nice easy book. It dealt with a number of areas students often struggle on.
This publication is essential for novices engaging in research. It explains the terminologies used in the research process, and summarises core points which is key for credible researchers.
Very user friendly text which allows students to gain an understanding of the initial concepts we discuss in classes. Have used the chapter on Research questions and aims as this appears to help students visualise what they are trying to achieve.
Easy to read- excellent text
I have adopted Dr. John Cresswell book: "Research design: Qualitative, quantitative, and mixed methods approaches."
This is a straightforward and comprehensive read laid out in a logical order. The objectives and summary for each chapter are particularly useful, especially the 'terms used' box.
very useful and will adopt for my research module for social work students, like the language and format of the book.
This is a good introductory book which takes a thoughtful look at the research process. Particularly useful is the exploratory nature of the text that constantly questions the reader and emphasises the numerous perspectives that exist when considering the research process. The ‘Points to Consider’ and ‘Questions to Ask’ boxes remind one of the contentious nature of research. The advisory tone of the book enables the student to gain a broad appreciation of the research process.
I liked this book and would put it on our reading list but would still recommend the Hek and Moule text as an introductory text for my undergraduates but it is still a good introductory text especially for scientic research
This is a very easy to read and a great to understand book. It answers those in the back of your head practical questions as you read without complicating the process of doing research.
recommended to students on a research module.
Good book with clear information about all the research stages
Very good and easy to read for my current students. Excellent resource!
