Editorial Reviews

Review

“A well-constructed, articulate reminder of how important fundamental questions of style and approach, such as clarity and precision, are to all research.”
-- Praise for previous edition, Times Literary Supplement

“I recommend it to my students . . . and keep a copy close at hand as the first option offered to students who ask, ‘Just how should I begin my research?’”
-- Praise for previous edition, Business Library Review

“What sets The Craft of Research apart from these other resources is that it teaches the reader how to think deeply about research in a more general sense. . . . The ample, updated examples of present-day research propositions used to illustrate such thought exercises help to keep the approach fresh and contemporary for a new generation of readers. Information professionals and experienced researchers will especially appreciate the expanded and updated sections on how to find resources in today’s information-rich, digital environment.”
, Reference Reviews

“For those writers in search of solid research to fuel their writing, this well-structured, accessible and affordable book is a gem.”
-- Praise for previous edition, Writer

“Accessible, readable and jargon-free. . . . The Craft of Research pays close attention to readers’ needs and anxieties.”
-- Praise for previous edition, Teaching in Higher Education

"This thorough but inexpensive book is foundational for understanding the research process from beginning to end, and the appendix lists sources for disciplinary-specific guidance that might be improved by including literature on particular research methods."
