GETTING STARTED AN INTRODUCTION TO RESEARCH METHODS

Getting Started: An Introduction to Research Methods follows on from the successful introductory text Social Science Research in New Zealand (Davidson and Tolich 1999, 2003).

The text is aimed at university and polytechnic students who are approaching research methods for the first time. The text will also be of interest to those who wish to develop their social science research skills.

Key areas covered by this text include: an introduction to social science research, common uses and different research methods, research design, sampling methodologies and qualitative and quantitative techniques, research best practice and ethics, and writing up results.

To supplement the text the authors have also developed instructor resources: a series of PowerPoint™ slides and an instructor manual linked to each chapter.
