Getting Down to Writing

  • Hilary Coombes
Part of the Palgrave Study Guides book series (PASTSK)


Once you have reached this point you are well on the way in your research and should feel justifiably proud of what you’ve achieved so far. Just think of the abundance of work you have undertaken and what you have already accomplished from those tentative beginnings. You have:
  • identified your research area

  • decided on aims or possibly a hypothesis to test

  • looked at various research styles and methodological approaches

  • read around your topic

  • kept records

  • carried out original data collection through interviews and/or questionnaires

  • analysed the findings.

Now you have to bring all the above elements together, but where do you start? You will find that different books will give you divergent advice on how to go about writing up and presenting your findings, but there really is no single correct way of ‘getting it all right’.
