This semester is my first time having to go through the official research proposal process, and it was a little terrifying! So having this book (and the Little Quick Fix: Research Question) available was super helpful. It really helps you get over that initial "What the heck am I even going to DO?!?!
I found this source too simplistic, and missed some aspects I wanted to deep dive into a little more- such as the literature review.
The short format is extremely accessible to undergraduate students or graduate students designing their first research projects. Clear step-by-step explanation makes the process less intimidating until they get better through practice.
A breif focused look at a key element in the research process.
This little book offers excellent guidance for students and less experienced researchers on writing a research proposal. It is highly practical, but uncompromising in demanding clarity of thought in preparing the proposal. The step-by-step workbook contained with its pages offers a valuable pathway for students that explains each of the steps necessary to achieve a well-organised and convincing research proposal and makes the prospect less daunting.
