"Around the world every year many thousands of students have to complete dissertations or theses as part of their undergraduate or masters studies in tourism and related subjects. Often the dissertation or thesis represents the culmination of their programme as a substantial piece of self-directed work. More than just a means to consolidate their final grade, it is also an exciting chance to conduct intensive research on a topic of their choosing. It can also be a gateway to further periods of study as well as job offers and future career paths. Yet for all these reasons, the dissertation is viewed by many students as a tricky challenge. This book intends to take the stress and anxiety out of doing a dissertation in tourism studies and related disciplines. The dissertation process is examined from the germination of an idea to the submission, presentation and assessment of the final document. We offer a framework for conducting dissertations in the English-speaking world which students can adopt to varying degrees in their research at the undergraduate and masters levels. We aim to debunk the popular myths and common pitfalls of doing a dissertation. Rather than view the dissertation as a single, overwhelming project, the dissertation is presented as a series of more modest, manageable yet crucially inter-linked tasks that all students can successfully complete through effective time management"--

Writing a Research Paper in Political Science

Even students capable of writing excellent essays still find their first major political science research paper an intimidating experience. Crafting the right research question, finding good sources, properly summarizing them, operationalizing concepts and designing good tests for their hypotheses, presenting and analyzing quantitative as well as qualitative data are all tough-going without a great deal of guidance and encouragement. Writing a Research Paper in Political Science breaks down the research paper into its constituent parts and shows students what they need to do at each stage to successfully complete each component until the paper is finished. Practical summaries, recipes for success, worksheets, exercises, and a series of handy checklists make this a must-have supplement for any writing-intensive political science course. New to the Fourth Edition: A non-causal research paper woven throughout the text offers explicit advice to guide students through the research and writing process. Updated and more detailed discussions of plagiarism, paraphrases, "drop-ins," and "transcripts" help to prevent students from misusing sources in a constantly changing digital age. A more detailed discussion of "fake news" and disinformation shows students how to evaluate and choose high quality sources, as well as how to protect oneself from being fooled by bad sources. Additional guidance for writing abstracts and creating presentations helps students to understand the logic behind abstracts and prepares students for presentations in the classroom, at a conference, and beyond. A greater emphasis on the value of qualitative research provides students with additional instruction on how to do it.
