This systematic guide takes students and practitioners through the basic steps of a research project, from start to finish. It is an invaluable tool for those who want to conduct their own research, or simply want a better understanding of published research.
Chris Barker, Nancy Pistrang and Robert Elliott provide a balanced account of both qualitative and quantitative methods within a framework of methodological pluralism -fitting the method to the research question. This new edition presents many new methods that have developed over the last decade, alongside the more traditional approaches.
With a wealth of features to aid teaching and learning, such as:
- Chapter outlines
- Case examples
- Chapter summaries
- Annotated further reading

It was a great refresher of my undergraduate years and helped me understand why you would choose x method for x research question. However, it does not contain any statistical information and does not explain what statistical method you would use and why - so I had to buy another book for that which worked out pretty pricey!
In summation, this book literally talks you through the stages of research from beginning to end, but wont help with data analysis and interpretation from a statistical point of view.
