Table of Contents
"I feel that there is a sad lack of easily understandable research methodology books on the market, which is particularly concerning in HE where students are required to carry out their own research and countless research literature reviews...This book in comparison is very accessible, easy to understand and very user friendly with a very broad range of references to the particular concept the reader needs to know about, that can be dipped into or read through more thoroughly." -- Pauline Sumner, Middlesex University
