 ABOUT THE TITLE
Successful research requires effective and thorough preparation.

Dealing with both qualitative and quantitative approaches to empirical research across the social sciences the Second Edition comprehensively covers the topics and concerns relevant to the subject and is organized around three central themes: What is a research proposal who reads proposals and why?; How can we go about developing a proposal?; and What might a finished proposal look like?New features of this edition include: - Expanded sections covering research strategy research planning and academic writing - Examples of successful research proposals from across the social science disciplines - A more comprehensive discussion of ethics - A brand new glossary and chapter summaries The Second Edition will be welcomed by all those preparing or evaluating research proposals and will be invaluable across all areas of social science both basic and applied and for students undertaking quantitative qualitative and mixed-method studies.
