The thesis of this handbook is that the most important elements in research are planning and rigorous attention to design. Therefore it is essential for graduate students and novice researchers to develop the skills of planning and communicating plans effectively.

Proposals That Work is about how to prepare effective research proposals for graduate theses and dissertations. A major part of the book comments on specimen proposals from a number of social science disciplines. The second edition of this extremely successful guide gives a deeper coverage of the grants process and grant proposal writing, as well as an extra section on qualitative research proposals.
