The Good Paper
The good paper is written for students who must independently formulate a research question and search for literature for their Bachelor theses, research papers, projects at all levels of project oriented education and Master and diploma theses.
The book is focused towards 5 fundamental guiding elements which can be illustrated by the pentagon model:
1. Research question
3. Data, materials and phenomena
4. Theories, concepts and methods
5. Research design
The book includes a numerous annotated examples of good papers from a great number of university educations and professional bachelor programmes.
It also includes activities along with explanations: How do you write a good paper?
The good paper is also available in Danish: Den gode opgave.
"A brief scan of the contents list immediately marks this book out as quite different from most Study Skills books available from UK publishers. It is refreshing to see the detail and depth of analysis that is included. There is an intellectual rigour that you rarely see in books aimed at undergraduate students. Notions of argumentation, rhetoric, and metacommunication are introduced and explored. (...) The result is a book I would happily recommend to staff and students."
