Overview
This book offers advice to beginning doctoral researchers and advanced graduate students on how to embark on their research. Based on a decade of teaching early-stage researchers in the social sciences at the LSE and other universities, and written with the central problems that starting researchers face in mind, it guides them through the process of thinking about the links between theory, cases and data. This lively book, which is deliberately kept jargon-free and adopts a hands-on approach to research design, addresses the problems that research students face - or ignore, often at their peril - in the course of their first few years. Its central message is that research is a complex and iterative process in which researchers construct every relevant part of their project with one goal in mind: make a convincing argument. The Appendix gives tips on presenting and discussing papers, and on crafting research proposals.
