About this book
The book addresses a number of key questions faced by students, supervisors and examiners:

•Why do students in non-scientific disciplines struggle to write up the outcomes of their research in the conventional structure?
•What alternative thesis structures can be devised to better suit the wide range of methods?
•Which theories and paradigms are commonly followed in education and the social sciences and how do these perspectives influence the research process?
•What methods, theories and paradigms are commonly adopted by education and social science students and what problems do these pose when students write their theses?
