Format: Paperback
I am recommending this text for my masters levels students. For the scale of their projects they do not have time to do fundamental quantitative research, and frequently that would not be appropriate: hence many focus on qualitative approaches.

This text gives clear discussions of the pros and cons of different approaches, practical hints and tips and good follow-on references.

However, this text would be less suitable for "pure" computer science students.

My experience is that (despite support from supervisors) many students have difficulties in at least one of the following areas (i) scoping a project (ii) defining their research area and choosing appropriate research techniques, and (iii) clearly, effectively, and critically, reviewing relevant literature. I believe this text provides clear guidance for students to follow in these areas.

(Disclosure : I know the author)
I am belatedly reviewing this book after many years of using it with Masters students. This book is an excellent prop for Masters and PhD students who are struggling to scope and plan their research. I have had much positive feedback from students on its utility for them. It is even more effective if their supervisor can signpost them to relevant sections like the diagram on the Research process, and the literature review section that distinguishes between author- centric and issue-centric approaches (a concept that may struggle with). It is written clearly and well-organised.

Both books are core module of my uni courses and were recommended. So far they have help in no small ways to guide my understanding and prepared me for my exams. However more review will be added by the end of the semester

This is really a good book in helping an IS student learn about research classifications and methodologies.

Though going to class would sure help if this is all new to you.

I used this book with students doing an early childhgood studies degree as the explantions on the philosophy underpinning research was excellent.

This book helped me to a MSc with distinction. Fantastically laid out, well written, easy to read (I read most of it during my commute!)
