The authors emphasize the idea that quality research demands planning and design, and they provide what is needed for readers to be able to execute their own research projects effectively and professionally.

 

From reviews of the text:

 

“The primary strengths ... are the authors’ capacity to provide a succinct overview to research in its broadest sense, while offering enough depth to both engage the reader and provoke an interest in further study. For this reason, Practical Research: Planning and Design represents a seminal introduction to the subject of research and remains a helpful reference tool along the way for novice and experienced researchers alike.”

– Robert Hayden, Michigan State University

 

“[Practical Research] is written in a very user-friendly style for novice researchers. It gives a good overview of research methodology in a very concise manner. I like the extended examples.”

– Brian Belland, Utah State University
