At some point or other in their academic careers, most 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 Maree is professor in the Department of Educational Psychology, Faculty of Education at the University of Pretoria. He is the editor of the South African Journal of Science and Technology and former editor of the South African Journal of Psychology. Recipient of multiple awards for his research and a regular keynote speaker at national and international conferences, he has three doctorates, is internationally acknowledged for his work in career counselling and in 2014 was honoured with a fellowship of the International Association of Applied Psychology.
