Successful research requires effective and thorough preparation. In this expanded and updated Second Edition of Developing Effective Research Proposals, author Keith Punch offers an indispensable guide to the issues involved in proposal development and in presenting a well-considered plan for the execution of research.
Dealing with both qualitative and quantitative approaches to empirical research across the social sciences, Developing Effective Research Proposals, Second Edition comprehensively covers the topics and concerns relevant to the subject and is organized around three central themes: What is a research proposal, who reads proposals and why; How can we go about developing a proposal?; and What might a finished proposal look like?
New to the Second Edition:
Expanded sections covering research strategy, research planning, and academic writing
Examples of successful research proposals from across the social science disciplines
A more comprehensive discussion of ethics
A brand new glossary and chapter summaries
Developing Effective Research Proposals, Second Edition will be welcomed by all those preparing or evaluating research proposals, and will be invaluable across all areas of social science, both basic and applied, and for students undertaking quantitative, qualitative, and mixed-method studies.
