about this item

Books on social and behavioral research too often focus on theory and methods overlook the practical skills needed to undertake a research project.The Research Companion recognizes this need and offers clear, honest advice to help avoid typical problems and improve standards and outcomes.

The whole research process is covered in succinct detail, from setting up a study through to presenting findings, with sections on all the basic tasks central to any research project, including:

planning research

researcher and participant safety

monitoring research in progress

research ethics.

The structure of the book makes it useful for researchers at all levels of experience. The numerous examples and case histories make it ideal for students just beginning their first research project, while the breadth of coverage and wealth of practical tips will also help more experienced researchers and practitioners.

The Research Companion brings hard-earned lessons from the real world to offer invaluable guidance to all students of the social and health sciences. It will be instrumental in raising readers’ competence levels and making their research more accurate, ethical, and productive.
