Academic Decision-Making Study - Invitation to participate
To Academic and Research Staff: We invite you to participate in a project investigating academic decision-making. We are interested in how established academics, such as yourself, choose what type of research method, research design, and statistical analysis, you use to address your research questions. We hope to use this information to develop a resource to better prepare and support students and new researchers for their transitions into academia. The aim of the project is to compile a practical and informative book or booklet based on current researcher's personal experiences in their professional research careers.
