Research Proposal
Little Quick Fix

  • Zina O'Leary - The Australia and New Zealand School of Government


August 2018 | 124 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd
When it comes to research proposals, there's the good, the bad, and the messy; there are essential elements and students often forget them, miss them, or struggle to find a workable plan. 

Zina O'Leary's Research Proposal Little Quick Fix gives students a clever, beautiful workbook packed with real-life examples to keep them on track. Use it to: work through guided exercises; understand the elements of the proposal; and, put them together thoughtfully to create your own research proposal—fast.

Little Quick Fix
 titles provide quick but authoritative answers to the problems, hurdles, and assessment points students face in the research course, project proposal or design—whatever their methods learning is.
  • Lively, ultra-modern design; full-color, each page a tailored design.
  • An hour's read/easy to dip in and out of; clear navigation enables the reader to find what they need—quick.
  • Direct written style gets to the point with clear language. Nothing needs to be read twice. No fluff.
  • Learning is reinforced through a 2-minute overview summary; 3-second summaries with super-quick Q&A
  • DIY tasks create a work plan to accomplish a task, do a self-check quiz, solve a problem, get students to what they need to show their supervisor.
  • Checkpoints in each section make sure students are nailing it as they go and support self-directed learning.
  • How do I know I’m done? Each Little Quick Fix wraps up with a finale checklist that allows the reader to self-assess they’ve got what they need to progress, submit, or ace the test or task.
