For those fearful of not getting enough research done, doing it the wrong way, putting it together incorrectly, or unsure of what the end result will be, then Understanding Research is an invaluable guide to getting it right and putting fears to bed.

This new textbook is an essential guide to completing a research project in the social sciences or humanities, focussing explicitly on the needs and experiences of students. It includes a wealth of practical tips, from gathering data, analyzing it based on your research question and to presenting your findings and conclusions.
