9781847208149: Research Without Tears: From the First Ideas to Published Output

"Research Without Tears" provides a concise and fascinating guide for those starting their first research project and writing a paper, report or thesis. John Creedy, a well published writer himself in both journals and books, argues that the process of planning and executing a research project, and producing a research paper which communicates results in a clear and succinct way, is far from self-evident even to those with extensive experience of writing other types of report or essay.This unique and invaluable book therefore sets down explicitly some of those points that even experienced researchers often take for granted in an accessible and clear manner. The book covers topics including; planning a first research project; writing a first research paper; writing a thesis and the relationship with a supervisor; invaluable sections with advice on structure, writing clearly and pitfalls to avoid; and, the differences between journal and book publishing and what to expect from editors of both publishing formats as well as experienced advice on the processes of publishing. This highly interesting and valuable book will be essential reading for academics in economics and other related sciences.

Review:

'This is a book every regional scientist and spatial analyst should have on their bookshelf. Like most handbook type publications it provides depth and breadth on the basics of the industrial clustering concept. However, unlike most of these type collections, it goes beyond the foundation material to identify and speculate on questions that are emerging on the research frontiers such as at the intersection of cluster theory and agglomeration processes, knowledge spillovers and technology transfer - not to mention the obvious link to economic development theory, policy and practice.'- Roger R. Stough, George Mason University, US --Roger R. Stough, George Mason University, US
