The primary aim of Writing Research is to create a frame of reference for writing research from a number of approaches to inquiry; and for a number of purposes. The content is directed to identifying principles for writing from within commonly used methodologies and methods in health research, which will guide writers to transform research data into written forms. The emphasis will be on the writing task, not on how to conduct the research, which follows after research data has been collected. The explanatory aspects of the content of the book will assist researchers in the development of research proposals and those who critique or review research for any purpose.

Key Features

  • The theory and practice of research writing are comprehensively covered.
  • Information on how to arrange material for specific purposes is provided.
  • A range of commonly used research approaches is encompassed, and the writing task is discussed from within each.
  • The writing process is linked to a philosophical basis of the research approach.
    • Readership

      The book will be of primary interest to all health professionals engaged in health research either as researchers or in teaching or reviewing roles. The book will be of specific interest to those who:

      • undertake research, whether at under graduate, post graduate or higher degree levels;
      • teach research whether at under graduate, post graduate or higher degree levels;
      • review research whether as journal articles, grant applications or research proposals;
      • examine dissertations / theses whether at graduate or postgraduate levels.
