A user-friendly reference for DIY research projects, Practical Research: Planning and Design is now on its 9th edition, providing researchers a step-by-step manual for planning, doing, and writing academic papers. It is a practical guide to the various techniques and methodologies and is written specifically for self-instruction. Paul Leedy and Jeanne Ellis Ormrod's unique approach allows readers to gain fundamental skills in doing quality research, whatever field of study they plan to engage in. The book includes short and long excerpts from a wide range of doctoral dissertations and theses, as well as research proposals. The appendix on how to use Microsoft Excel in listing, reviewing, and organizing resources for the review of literature as well as performing statistical analyses and other calculations is very useful. Additional contents include an expanded coverage of grammar, basic punctuation, and use of online resources and databases. Practical Research: Planning and Design (9th Edition) ISBN 9780137152421 offers a brief overview of research fundamentals, including the tools used in research. Succeeding parts talk about basic components like the problem, review of related research, research design/plan, and research proposal. There are chapters devoted to qualitative research methodologies, including qualitative and historical research. Quantitative methodologies are likewise discussed, including descriptive research and ex post facto and experimental designs. The book also teaches readers how to prepare and organize a research report. Both authors have been recognized for their achievements throughout their teaching careers. Paul Leedy is affiliated with the American University, while Jeanne Ormrod teaches at the University of Northern Colorado. The latter is known for her books, Human Learning, Essentials of Educational Psychology, and Our Minds, Our Memories: Enhancing Thinking and Learning at All Ages.
