Book Description

18 Jun 2006 1412902932 978-1412902939
This accessible and wide-ranging book is an invaluable introductory guide through the choices to be made when deciding how to report research. Writing and Presenting Research covers research written as theses and dissertations; chapters, books, reports and articles in academic, professional or general media such as newspapers; and also reviews the options for presenting research orally as lectures, keynotes, conference papers and even TV game shows.
 

 

These forms of reporting research have well-established conventions for their formats, but they also have growing numbers of alternative possibilities. This has generated debate about what is, or is not, acceptable, and the aim of this book is to make this debate more manageable for those wanting to assess which of the conventional or alternative possibilities on offer is most appropriate for reporting their current research.

 

Arranged in easily followed sections enlivened with checklists, style variations, examples and reflection points, Writing and Presenting Research has relevance to the social sciences, arts, humanities, natural and applied sciences and law and is an invaluable reference tool for new and experienced researchers alike.

SAGE Study Skills are essential study guides for students of all levels. From how to write great essays and succeeding at university, to writing your undergraduate dissertation and doing postgraduate research, SAGE Study Skills help you get the best from your time at university.

This is a good book, but it came in an old format and is not as shown in the picture. The content is good though so can't really complain...its only a cover after all. Bit disappointed.

4.0 out of 5 stars helpful general reference 7 July 2007
By R. Brower - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I highly recommend this book for graduate students and new faculty, but with one caveat: the bit about alternative writing formats isn't for you. I found Angela Thody's writing style engaging and sometimes humorous, which is unusual in this sort of book. To some degree, I felt this was one book that should have been split into two. The ideas about alternative formats are intriguing, but should be directed to tenured faculty who can afford to have research rejected from time to time. The subject of alternative formats would make an interesting book in itself, with experienced researchers as its intended audience.

The rest of the text about writing, publishing, and presenting academic work seemed like a more sophisticated version of Publish or Perish - The Educator's Imperative: Strategies for Writing Effectively for Your Profession and Your Schoolby Allan A. Glatthorn. I believe both are useful books for education doctoral students, practitioners, and new faculty. Glatthorn's book is written primarily for educators while Thody's audience also includes the humanities and social sciences.

As an interesting aside, Thody and Glatthorn take opposing positions on the issue of clever titles for research articles. Thody believes snappy titles get your work noticed. Glatthorn believes you should avoid them at all cost because referees perceive them as unprofessional. This gives you a little flavor for Thody and Glatthorn's philosophical differences.
