This new edition of 'Research Methods for Postgraduates' is a response both to the success of the first edition and to the rapid change in methods and technology in this area. This book is unique in bringing together guidance for postgraduate students on how to organise plan and do research from an interdisciplinary perspective. The wide-ranging coverage of the first edition is enhanced by the addition of new chapter on creativity, the use of the web in research, guides to writing, and the use of software packages. Updates are provided on issues relevant to postgraduates in all subjects, from writing a proposal and securing research funds, to data analysis and the presentation of research, through to intellectual property protection and career opportunities. Like its predecessor, the second edition of 'Research Methods for Postgraduates' is accessible and comprehensive, and is a must for any postgraduate student.About the Author:
