Editorial Reviews

"I would recommend students to purchase this book because I think it would provide them with everything they needed for undertaking a project or dissertation. I particularly welcome the fact that it encourages them to approach their research in a reflective way and seeks to develop skills such as time management which are relevant to future employability."--Wyn Grant, University of Warwick, UK
