Head of the Social Justice and Inclusive Education Research Centre, University of Southampton
'Having run a PhD programme (comprising over 40 students) for six years and supervised 16 research students, nine to completion, I feel qualified to testify to the value of this book. Learning has become increasingly structured in the last two decades and new research students are often overwhelmed by the demands of PhD study, which requires conceptual thinking, independence, self-motivation and creativity. In my view, this unique publication offers an excellent and indispensable guide to research for first-timers. I wholeheartedly recommend it
Professor of Sustainable Building, Design and Wellbeing, University of Warwick
The third edition of Walliman's guide for novice researchers has been thoroughly updated to reflect methodological developments. It retains the unique characteristics which made earlier versions so successful: a theoretically-informed introduction to the research process grounded in an understanding of how individuals learn most effectively
