tertiary-level students are going to be faced with having to do a
research project. It is a fundamental part of further education
that many students find daunting. This need not be the case. First
steps in research uses the most current perspectives in the field
both locally and internationally to provide practical guidelines on
how to conduct and report on research at undergraduate and
postgraduate level. First steps in research facilitates the
understanding and application of theories, goals, methods and
strategies, being easy to read and use without diluting the
conceptual and terminological complexities of the field. It
examines the historical and philosophical underpinnings of
qualitative, quantitative and integrated or mixed methods of
conducting research and suggests how these three approaches may
best be used. It also elaborates on the methodological dimensions
of action research processes and exemplifies participatory
reflection. First steps in research is aimed at novice researchers,
including undergraduate students or junior postgraduate students
who are encountering research methodology for the first time. Kobus
