This book is designed to help students engage with research, whether they are undergraduates thinking of continuing their education, or MPhil or PhD candidates, regardless of their field of study. It will make their research programmes and day-to-day lives more productive and enjoyable, and is a practical and engaging guide. The structure guides students through the entire span of their research programme but also has frequent exercises for the reader in order to apply or interpret the skills and strategies to their own circumstances. As well as material on interacting with supervisors, time management, progress checks, and preparing for vivas, this edition will have two new chapters on research ethics and overseas students. There will also be new sections on sources of funding, evaluating the quality of literature, databases, employment while studying, learning styles and publishing and co-authoring with supervisors.
