Editorial Reviews

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
