"This book is a must resource for anyone writing a thesis or dissertation, for anyone teaching a research methods course, or advising students. The chapters compiled demystify the research process from finding a topic, reviewing the literature, designing the study, writing the methods, to potential obstacles that might impede completion of the project. The inclusion of both qualitative and quantitative research and the role of technology are other examples of the breadth of information covered. The diversity of examples included from actual theses and dissertations provides concrete models that will surely help guide beginning researchers. I will use this text in my research methods courses for years to come!"
"Heppner and Heppner provide comprehensive information about developing research ideas, formulating the methodology for both qualitative and quantitative studies, and overcoming the emotional and psychological obstacles that hinder completion of independent research. The book is innovative in that it addresses the use of technological advances in searching the literature and provides guidelines for collecting data using the Internet. I not only want to highly recommend this book to my students, I want to highlight multiple points throughout the book and encourage them to memorize them. This book will make a difference in the lives of graduate students...and their advisors."
