New Book Recommendation: Developing Effective Research Proposals

Each week recent purchases are placed on the new book displays inside the library, and eBooks are made immediately available to use. You can view and subscribe to the New Library Books list online. For instructions on how to borrow an eBook by downloading it; check out our eBook LibGuide. Some eBooks require logging in with your JCU username and password; additional software will need to be installed to download books to a digital bookshelf. Most eBooks can be read online without downloading extra software.


 An new book title of interest is: Developing effective research proposals by Keith Punch.

An extract from the publisher's website states:

This is your step-by-step guide to success with your research proposal. This new edition covers all sections of the proposal, telling you all you need to know on how to structure it, bring rigour to your methods section, impress your readers and get your proposal accepted.

 With practical tips and advice throughout, new features include:
  •  comprehensive explanation of method and methodology, and how to maximize this crucial section of your proposal
  •  a new section on mixed methods: an increasingly common approach in research
  •  a new chapter on how to get it right with ethics
  •  fresh exercises and activities, now for each key chapter. 
The third edition provides an authoritative and accessible guide for anyone tackling a research proposal. It is perfect for students in education, nursing, health, and across the social sciences.
