"The book has the advantage that chapters are fairly self-contained, so the reader can dip into sections that look helpful. There is good material on data sources, research details to include, checklists to use, and methodology to develop." --John M. Wilson in Journal of the Operational Research Society "This information-packed book is designed to help the researcher approach the grant application process and develop a competitive and successful application. Applying for Research Funding moves the reader through important elements of the application process: making choices at the start, making key contacts, assessing research environments, and knowing what to include on and how to write an application. Some of the other topics this helpful volume covers are writing a persuasive application to its reviewers, and what to expect when an application is or is not funded." --Science, Technology & Society "Ries and Leukefeld have brought together a wealth of experience in this field. They have produced a book which should greatly enrich the research-process literature. . . .What this book promises is a comprehensive and structured form of coaching for the novice, and a clarification and sharpening up of the process for the more seasoned researcher. The layout of the book reflects the ease with which it is intended to be read. . . . Even if one is not applying for funding, this book is worth reading prior to undertaking a major piece of research for the intelligent contribution it can make to structuring your thoughts and to making you look outside the confines of your study topic." --Ramon Pediani in Journal of Advanced Nursing In an environment of shrinking resources, getting research funding from both the government and the private sector is becoming more and more competitive. This information-packed book is designed to help the researcher approach the grant application process and develop a competitive and successful application. Applying for Research Funding moves the reader through important elements of the application process: making choices at the start, making key contacts, assessing research environments, and knowing what to include in and how to write an application. Some of the other topics this helpful volume covers are how to write a persuasive application, how to target the application to its reviewers, and what to expect when an application is or is not funded. Both the beginning and seasoned researcher will find this supportive book invaluable in embarking on and completing the grant-writing process that is so frequently vital to career enhancement.
