Booth W., Colomb G., Williams D. Research. Sixteen Lessons for Beginning Authors, 2007
This manual offers practical advice on writing research work for students, graduate students and young scientists of all specialties. It teaches more than the art of data collection: the manual examines research as an analytical process. The authors illustrate with diagrams each stage of the research process, from finding a topic and generating questions to it, to presenting evidence, putting forward arguments and creating a finished written work as an authoritative document. The material of the book will be useful both to those who first take on a research project, and to those who write a Ph.D. thesis.
