The Research Funding Guidebook
Getting It, Managing It, and Renewing It

Edited by:


October 1997 | 272 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
This hands-on guide begins at the point many grant seekers can identify with - rejection. Part One emphasizes how to resubmit unfunded applications to make them more competitive. The material contained in this section is invaluable, especially since funding sources are now limiting the number of times the same application can be resubmitted. Part Two highlights the practical issues of a project after funding has been obtained. The authors provide a map of the people and places that must become part of a researcher's daily and weekly routine, a checklist to aid the newly funded researcher's progress, and guidance on the essential but often overlooked feature of research funding, time management. Subjects of other sections of this volume include the `small business' aspects of maintaining funding for a project, and the process of targeting continued funding by determining the next fundable step of a project.

SAGE Research Methods is a research methods tool created to help researchers, faculty and students with their research projects. SAGE Research Methods links over 175,000 pages of SAGE’s renowned book, journal and reference content with truly advanced search and discovery tools. Researchers can explore methods concepts to help them design research projects, understand particular methods or identify a new method, conduct their research, and write up their findings. Since SAGE Research Methods focuses on methodology rather than disciplines, it can be used across the social sciences, health sciences, and more.

With SAGE Research Methods, researchers can explore their chosen method across the depth and breadth of content, expanding or refining their search as needed; read online, print, or email full-text content; utilize suggested related methods and links to related authors from SAGE Research Methods' robust library and unique features; and even share their own collections of content through Methods Lists. SAGE Research Methods contains content from over 720 books, dictionaries, encyclopedias, and handbooks, the entire “Little Green Book,” and "Little Blue Book” series, two Major Works collating a selection of journal articles, and specially commissioned videos.
