This chapter looks at a range of basic ideas and approaches for good practice in research. It considers a variety of underpinning principles, approaches, and values in action which you should find useful whatever discipline or interdisciplinary area you are working in, in your research. It builds on a variety of fundamentally good ideas from a range of other books on carrying out research, including my own The Postgraduate Research Handbook (2008), interprets these good ideas in a broader range of subject areas, and adds to them. Instead of ‘Activities’, it uses prompt ‘Questions’ at the end of each section for you to reflect on your own developing research. It should be useful to you throughout your research at university and beyond.
