Sample text

Therefore, keep thorough records and don’t be caught out in this way. As soon as you start writing you can establish two lists of references. One is active and contains all the references you have collected. The other is a list of all references which are likely to be used or which you have ordered from the library. When the copies arrive, you can transfer these to the ‘active’ list. At the beginning you might not see the relevance of a certain text even though it is connected to your field. Keep a photocopy, however, just in case.

If this is the case, you could follow the lines of the previous study in its entirety or, if time and resources prevent this, use it to guide your research approach. An earlier work, for instance, may lend support for your choice of research methods. On the other hand, if you consider that it is defective in its sample, method, analysis or interpretation, you could offer your adapted methodology as an attempt to redress the limitations of the previous investigation. Other research on the same topic encourages you to reflect on your own approach and conclusions in an informed way.

Considerations such as these will influence your choice of topic. The next stage in the research process is to review the literature and write your research proposal. This we discuss in the following chapter. 3 Reviewing the literature and writing the research proposal A literature review is a description, critical analysis and evaluation of relevant texts – both current and seminal – that relate to your research question or topic.
