Doing research is like being a detective. Both researchers and detectives are trying to find out something. Both are asking and answering questions. Both are trying to put together a puzzle to come up with a solution. In both, answering questions leads to more questions. And, in both, seeing patterns is crucial to solving the puzzle.
Research Across the Disciplines: An Introduction provides students with information about the foundations of research methods, the choices as scholars make, and the methodological decisions driving to balance the desire to know and inquire into interesting communication questions while instilling an enthusiasm about the process.
