Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

This immensely practical book is designed for anyone new to research and planning to undertake a research project. The textbook is organized around eight operational steps that constitute the research process: formulating a research problem; conceptualizing a research design; constructing an instrument for data collection; selecting a sample; writing a research proposal; collecting data; processing data; and writing a research report.

Ranjit Kumar has drawn on 20 years of teaching experience to demystify the research process and give students a helpful and informative guide.
