Management and Business Research has been central in forming the methodologies applied throughout my doctoral research. It has exceeded all expectations I held for a Research Methods book, providing deep, holistic understandings of multiple methods rather than simply mapping out methodologies that currently exist. Throughout the current pandemic that has demanded dramatic shifts in methodologies and revisiting the book has facilitated a confident and successful transition to alternative methodologies. It has gone beyond enabling an awareness of the diversity of methods available to researchers to provide clear and extensive explanations of these, which can be effectively mobilised within my research.

Jack Daly
PhD student at Leeds University Business School, UK

I find the book very useful in guiding my qualitative investigation in the finance and accounting sector for completing my MSc. The book provides overarching understanding on scientific research and practical guidance for conducting business research. The information provided is up-to-date and engaging. This is definitely a resourceful must-read for students planning their master thesis.

Jingwen Zhou
MSc student at University of California, Irvine (UCI), USA

This is a user-friendly book for undergraduate students majoring in management and business. The book is very interactive, and the online resources are sufficient. Notes and definitions in the margins of the book make the reading much easier. This is essential for writing my final dissertation.

Conghui Huang
undergraduate student at Essex Business School, University of Essex, UK

As an undergraduate student, I found this book applicable to planning and conducting any social science research project. Concepts are explained clearly but concisely, and examples are relevant and thought-provoking. The chapter on machine learning is especially useful since it explains an important topic not yet covered in most research methods textbooks.

Alex Patel
BSc student at University of Leeds, UK

This book provides reliable and ample knowledge for management students of all levels. The guidance on literature review, philosophical standing, research design, data analysis and writing-up is offered in great detail. The example and exercise sections provide teaching staff with adequate materials to deliver in class.

This new, fully revised edition of Management and Business Research is the ideal research methods text for new and experienced researchers in management. The new edition has kept all of the strengths of the previous editions and has been updated and extended with important new developments in ethics, big data and quantitative methods.
