Doing a Research Project in English Studies: A Guide for Students


Doing a Research Project in English Studies is the essential guide to undertaking research and developing academic English literacy skills for students new to research. With a particular focus on the needs of students in contexts where English is used as a foreign or an additional language, this accessible textbook takes the reader through the research process in five main sections:
* getting started (arriving at a topic, interacting with a supervisor)
* finding bibliographic resources
* collecting data
* developing academic writing skills
* preparing for the oral defence.
Each chapter contains exercises; the answer key facilitates independent study throughout. Extracts from published research articles provide invaluable illustration of the features of academic writing. This is a must-have resource for advanced undergraduate and postgraduate students embarking on a research project in English studies.
