Vyhmeister's work is a classic work for doctoral students of theology and appears in multiple languages. It now appears in its third edition. It clearly lays out each of the necessary components for researching and preparing research papers, dissertations, theses, and D.Min. projects. Chapters are short and easily referenced.

A super practical, step-by-step guide to doing research

This is the clearest and best resource I’ve read on the topic. Aimed a theological research, this book does a great job of instructing on how to write book reviews, general academic papers, and dissertations.

Thorough and Practical

Probably one of the best books on the subject. It is very thorough, redundant at times but not without merit and very practical. It offers many clear examples.

This is by far the most helpful resource I’ve encountered on the process of actually doing good, solid research. The author is very engaging in her writing style, yet very helpful in her material.

I really can’t express how practical and helpful this book is and how useful it will be when it comes time to write my thesis.

Nothing extraordinary. An acceptable primer for the research process without being buried in deep technicalities. It is also a good quick reference type of book when you are hung up on an issue.

“Descriptive research may have first been used to document need for change by John Howard, who began to fret in 1773 over the inhumane conditions of the prisons in Bedford, England. In order to prove what he was saying, he traveled all over England, visiting jails and noting the exact number of prisoners, what crimes they had committed, the conditions under which they were held, and other matters concerning the prison system. After completing his descriptive study, he stood before the House of Commons and gave a detailed and precise report that became the basis for important prison reforms. Howard later compared English prisons with jails in other European countries. His book The State of Prisons (1777) was one of the first comparative-descriptive studies. After studying the prisons of the land, he went on to investigate the conditions in hospitals. In one of these places he contracted” 0 likes
