Additional Book Details

Perfect for graduate students as well as behavioural and social scientists who supervise and conduct research!


In the fully updated Fourth Edition of their best-selling guide, Surviving Your Dissertation, Rudestam and Newton answer questions concerning every stage of the dissertation process, including:

selecting a suitable topic
conducting a literature review
developing a research question
understanding the role of theory
selecting an appropriate methodology and research design
analysing data
interpreting and presenting results.

In addition, this must-have guide covers topics that other dissertation guides often miss, such as the many types of quantitative and qualitative research models available, the principles of good scholarly writing, how to work with committees, how to meet IRB and ethical standards, and how to overcome task and emotional blocks.



With plenty of current examples, the new edition features an expanded discussion of online research, data collection and analysis, and the use of data archives, as well as expanded coverage of qualitative methods and added information on mixed methods.
