This guide brings together advice from a team of experts, drawn from a number of UK universities. Chapters cover: planning/organising a thesis; understanding the role of theory; constructing and interpreting qualitative data; analysing quantitative data; writing; legal and ethical issues; the submission and examination process and publishing. The book includes one-minute summaries, case studies, discussion points and questions and answers.

Other key areas covered include:

  • the 3 essential questions in planning a thesis
  • the 4 different types of interview
  • confidentiality and copyright issues
  • the 7 stages of the research process
  • pre- and researcher-constructed data
  • the publication process
