Research Methods for Postgraduates (2nd edition)
04 Feb 2002
This book was originally produced in response to the government's 1994 White Paper, 'Realising our Potential', which recommended that all graduates wishing to study for doctorates should first take a one-year Masters course in Research Methods. It aims to provide a set of notes for guidance on most aspects of research likely to be encountered by PG students. The 42 chapters cover some entirely generic issues - managing a PhD, word processing, using the internet, library and information services, career opportunities - and some more specific - research types, issues of measurement, issues of analysis, mathematical tools, etc.
