This guide offers a step by step explanation of how to research and how a computer can make the whole process a lot easier. The book assumes no previous experience of either research or computing, and uses no unnecessary jargon. It covers everything the student will need to know in order to carry out a successful research project from choosing a topic, exploring the values and ethics in research, to guidance on the technical issues of conducting research. This book hopes to be an invaluable guide for anyone undertaking a research project.
