Over fifty concrete examples, exercises, discussions and short case studies give a good illustration of the practice of research so to enhance the understanding of the application of methodology in specific research contexts. Another special feature of this book is the extensive comparative Glossary of key methodological terms, ideas and notions that has been incorporated. Also, various checklists are provided to help students structure their research activities and reflect on key issues and choices that need to be made.
