Abstract
This eBook is designed to introduce students and novice researchers to research concepts and processes. You are not alone if you have been assigned the task of writing a research paper or thesis proposal and do not know where to start! Even defining the research question can at first seem overwhelming. Introduction to Research: Demystifying the Research Process is designed to introduce students and novice researchers to research concepts and processes in education, as well as in other social science disciplines. This eBook will help you understand how to read research reports critically, introduce you to different types of research, and provide guidelines for conducting research yourself. What sets this eBook apart from other introductory texts to research is the inclusion of an extensive number of examples that come from the students in our classes, beginning researchers, and our own work as researchers in various stages of our careers. It is our intention that these make the eBook practical and meaningful for you.
