Review:

One of the best guides on planning and implementing research! O'Leary's book will be an essential part of my future courses to make sure that students really grasp the different phases of a (small) research project.--Martin Senn (10/17/2013)

This book is very accessible and provides a useful overview of the range of research approaches. It adopts a very practical approach to undertaking research, providing students with clear guidance at each stage of the process.--Michelle Butler (10/17/2013)

An excellent introduction for undergraduate students looking to delve into the world of research. This book will help guide them through the process of planning research, collecting and analysing data, as well as writing the whole thing up. It is an essential guide that really is essential.--Tom Clark (10/17/2013)

This latest work from Zina O'Leary continues and extends her valuable contribution to the research methodology literature. The book is clear, logically laid out and comprehensive, covering everything research students require. Once again, the writing is inviting and accessible. The result is a book which will be of great use to research students, and to those who teach them. Zina O'Leary's experience in working with research students shines through. --Keith Punch (10/22/2013)
