Research in Practice
Research in Practice is a practical and comprehensive guide to the intermediate concepts, principles and terminologies of applied research. As such, it focuses on what applied research is, and how and why we use it. This book explains how research is conducted within organisations. In so doing, it illustrates how research is planned, how data can be collected, and how questionnaires can be designed effectively. Furthermore, it describes how an interview schedule can be constructed for a chosen qualitative research design. It also demonstrates basic approaches to both quantitative and qualitative data analysis. Finally, Research in Practice highlights the ethical principles that apply within various research contexts, discusses the dissemination of research findings, and shows students how to translate research into practice.
