This concise, hands-on book by author Elizabeth A. Wentz is essential reading for any graduate student entering the dissertation process in the social or behavioral sciences. The book addresses the importance of ethical scientific research, developing your curriculum vitae, effective reading and writing, completing a literature review, conceptualizing your research idea, and translating that idea into a realistic research proposal using research methods.
The author also offers insight into oral presentations of the completed proposal, and the final chapter presents ideas for next steps after the proposal has been presented. Taking the view that we “learn by doing,” the author provides Quick Tasks, Action Items, and To Do List activities throughout the text that, when combined, develop each piece of your research proposal. Designed primarily for quantitative or mixed methods research dissertations, this book is a valuable start-to-finish resource.

I am the first member of my family to go to college and have three degrees in political science — a bachelor’s and a master’s from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), and a PhD from the University of Hawai’i. I did my dissertation research in Vietnam — for which I had to learn Vietnamese well enough to converse in the language without an interpreter — and I’ve also traveled to Thailand, Cambodia, and Burma. My latest area of interest is the politics and history of the Middle East, and I’ve been traveled to Egypt four times since 2009. Much of what I teach involves the application of economic principles to everyday behavior.
