Academic research is a different world to that which is normally encountered in everyday life and as such it has a unique set of concepts and issues with which it operates.
Learning the vocabulary required to understand these concepts and issues is a non-trivial challenge.
This book A Dictionary of Research Concepts and Issues has been prepared to assist students, lecturers and others who wish to improve their command of the language of research.
The 600+ concepts and issues is not a definitive list of the ideas which a researcher could encounter but it is a solid basis on which to build a sound understanding of this interesting subject.
