Research Using IT offers a step-by-step explanation of how to research and how a computer can make the whole process a lot easier.

It covers everything the student will need to know in order to carry out a successful research project - from choosing a topic, exploring the values and ethics in research, to guidance on the technical issues of conducting research. This book is an invaluable guide for anyone undertaking a research project.
