About our manuals
Doing research can be quite difficult. Especially when you are doing it the first time. You have to take so many things into account. Sometimes you only know afterwards what could have been the best thing to do. But then it's too late. On the other hand, research isn't that difficult if you know what decisions you need to make and what consequences those decisions have.
To help you through the process, I have written a series of papers and manuals. In my opinion, the research question is the most important aspect. With a bad research question, any research will fail. The research question is the basis for your research design. This should be elaborated into four aspects: the research design, the sample, the instruments and the analyses. Our papers are manuals and cover these topics that are so much discussed. Once you have read these papers, you will know exactly wich arguments should be used to solve a problem. Read them on before hand and as a result, your research will go much faster.
Below is the list of papers that are currently available. If you know more about a specific problem, you can purchase that one paper. In about 10 pages you will be explained in detail how it works and how you should tackle that problem.
These are our papers:
- How to formulate a good research question
- How to create research designs and conceptual models
- Nine ways to draw a sample
- How to calculate the sample size
- Testing instruments with factor analysis and Cronbach's alpha
- The statistical test procedure
- How to choose the correct statistical test
- How to present statistical results in a report
- How to analyze the data from interviews
You can order a paper separately (€ 6.95 each). Follow one of the links above for more information about the content of a paper. However, if you want to buy all our papers at the same time, click on the button below. This will be much cheaper for you.
