- We can order this from the publisher
While each research situation is different and no book can fully prepare the researcher for what they experience - this book provides a guide to what may be expected. Brian Roberts takes the researcher through the research process, answering the practical and subjective questions anyone will face:
- entering the field and finding the right research topic
- emotional and identity issues of research
- overcoming writing and research 'blocks'
- getting your research into reports, articles and books
- reactions to research and how to handle experiences of rejection
- and the questions every researcher should ask: What do I get from research, and what next?
Loaded with advice on everything from organizing interpretations to coping with stress, this book is a must-read for students of all levels across the social sciences who are about to enter the research field.
