Do you want to turn your research idea into a published journal article but don’t know where to start? Or maybe you’re in the middle of a research project and feel frustrated, alone, and stuck?
My first scientific research project left me feeling pretty daunted, too. In this practical and accessible book, I’ll guide you past the hurdles that make research so challenging and lead you through the research process from start to finish. I will save you time, effort, and frustration on your journey to getting published.
This book organizes the research journey into a clear, step-by-step process. The process covers seven phases: review the literature, outline the project, run the experiment, visualize the findings, write the first draft, edit into the second draft, and revise until published. The book breaks each phase into a series of smaller tasks, encourages through the anxieties that hinder progress, and discusses strategies for boosting productivity.
