Doing Your Own Research by Robin Buss; Eileen Kane; Mary O'Reilly De BrunNew, completely revised second edition. If you want to do research and aspire to academic ability, this book is for you - it will guide and challenge you, and keep you on the straight and narrow path of academic integrity. Doing Your Own Research is an essential reference tool for the student researcher. A complete A to Z of research, it explains all stages of a research project; from developing the basic idea to collecting the information and producing the final paper. In a method unique to this book, the author shows how to convert an idea for research into a researchable statement and from that into a guide to the data to be collected. The technique can be applied to a wide range of descriptive research projects spanning academic, business, community, voluntary and personal interests. Knowing how to get information is a source of power in modern society. One of the primary aims of the book is to enable individuals and community groups with no previous experience to do their own research in a professional and satisfying way.
