500 Tips for Research Students.
Brown, Sally; McDowell, Liz; Race, Phil
This book provides guidance to the research student in planning, carrying out, writing up, and publishing research findings. More than 500 tips for researchers are presented in a format that groups the tips into sets of ideas for each of the following chapters: (1) "Getting Started in Research"; (2) "Finding Your Feet--and Keeping Them"; (3) "Reading, Writing--and Finishing"; (4) Getting Going with Teaching"; and (5) "Life after Researching." Suggestions are given for the teaching in which research students are often involved, and for finding a job after the research period comes to an end. The book is not intended to be read cover-to-cover, but is designed to be a reference. The skills needed to be a research student are very different than those needed to be an undergraduate. This book cannot solve all the novice research student's problems, but it can be an invaluable resource. Thirty-three sources are listed for further reading. (SLD)
