This book is aimed at anyone involved in an academic research project from high school majors to PhD students and experienced researchers with a strong publication record. The author is acutely aware of the amount of time it takes to bring an idea from inception through to publication. The aim of this book is to introduce the tools and techniques the author has used to establish his research career in a relatively short time, whilst keeping an eye on the quality of output. The tools and techniques presented are not intended to substitute for academic acumen, but help concentrate on the aspects of research that add value to a project and help avoid tasks which are time consuming and contribute nothing to the academic quality of a research project.
