Developing effective research proposals
Successful research requires effective and thorough preparation. In this expanded and updated Second Edition of Developing Effective Research Proposals, author Keith F. Punch offers an indispensable guide to the issues involved in proposal development and in presenting a well-considered plan for the execution of research. Dealing with both qualitative and quantitative approaches to empirical research across the social sciences, the Second Edition comprehensively covers the topics and concerns relevant to the subject and is organized around three central themes: What is a research proposal, who reads proposals and why; How can we go about developing a proposal?; and What might a finished proposal look like?
