Bryman: Social Research Methods: 5e

Student researcher's toolkit

This researcher's toolkit has been developed to offer you practical advice and suggestions to help you design, carry out and write up a social science research project.

It is divided into four sections: Preparing for the research, Designing the research, Conducting the research, and Data analysis and writing up. There are links to useful sites at relevant points throughout the guide.

To help you get the most out of this resource, the guide is fully cross-referenced back to the book, using chapter and page references.

Grateful acknowledgement is given to Dr Tom Clark, Lecturer in Research Methods at the University of Sheffield and Dr Liam Foster, Senior Lecturer in Social Policy and Social Work at the University of Sheffield for producing the student researcher's toolkit for this edition.
