Research Methods: The Basics is an accessible, user-friendly introduction to the different aspects of research theory, methods and practice. Structured in two parts, the first covering the nature of knowledge and the reasons for research, and the second the specific methods used to carry out effective research, this book covers:

  • Structuring and planning a research project
  • The ethical issues involved in research
  • Different types of data and how they are measured
  • Collecting and analysing data in order to draw sound conclusions
  • Devising a research proposal and writing up the research

Complete with a glossary of key terms and guides to further reading, this book is an essential text for anyone coming to research for the first time, and is widely relevant across the social sciences and humanities.
