Specifically, the text addresses the issues of how to compile literature on the chosen topic and how to construct a robust theoretical framework, it presents the ethical problems researchers may encounter, it explains how to collect and analyze data, it provides tips for the writing process, it illustrates the differences between qualitative and quantitative approaches, it defines what we understand by an action research, a case study or a grounded theory method and finally, it describes the philosophical paradigms that support each of these modes of investigation. Furthermore, the volume, noted for its clarity and accessibility, provides concrete examples extracted from published research papers as well as diagrams and summaries to explain the most complex content.
