This revised and updated edition ofHow To Do Your Dissertation In Geography and Related Disciplinescontinues to provide a detailed guide to the planning and procedures that students need to consider when preparing their dissertations in geography, environmental science and geology. Taking into account new sources, improved technology in production of the dissertation, and changes in teaching style, this text goes through each of the stages, from deciding what topic to work on, through designing the research and collecting the data, to handing in the final bound volume. With an extended consideration of different types of data (qualitative, quantitative and spatial) and a wider consideration of different approaches to problem solving the text suggests practical ways of tackling the tasks involved and locates common pitfalls associated with each.
