Chandos Information Professional Series
- provides an introduction to the use of technology even a novice researcher will find easy to understand
- highlights techniques that allows the reader to get started immediately on saving time and improving their productivity and quality of their research and publications
- draws upon the tools and techniques actually employed by the author in publishing a volume of work in a relatively short period of time
- written by an experienced and successful academic researcher
This book is aimed at anyone involved in an academic research project from high school majors to PhD students and experienced researchers with a strong publication record. The author is acutely aware of the amount of time it takes to bring an idea from inception through to publication. The aim of this book is to introduce the tools and techniques the author used to establish his research career in a relatively short time, whilst keeping an eye on the quality of output. The tools and techniques presented are not intended as a substitute for academic acumen, but help concentrate on the aspects of research that add value to a project and help avoid tasks which are time consuming and contribute nothing to the academic quality of a research project.
Readership: Those engaged in an academic research project; particularly students undertaking and writing up a major academic research project: high school, undergraduate, honours, masters and PhD students. This book will also be useful for seasoned academic researchers looking to save time by improving their research, writing and presentation skills.ISBN 1 84334 675 3
