This comprehensive and easy-to-use book supports postgraduate researchers in the early stages of their project. Written in an engaging and accessible style, it helps readers to clarify what they want to research and how to conduct that research. Each chapter covers a key stage in the process, from selecting an appropriate research topic and developing a working research question through to assimilating and evaluating relevant literature. It then guides researchers through the process of writing a literature review, selecting a research methodology and creating a research proposal.

This invaluable guide is ideal for PhD and Masters students alike and will equip them with the skills needed to get their research project underway.
