MORE thoughts from delegates on what makes a good research report (23 Oct 08)

Not the world’s most exciting subject – but very important and there’s a ton of good advice here

You probably remember that I recently asked delegates who had been on our research courses to give us some help on a new course we are developing, How To Write A Research Report.

We were simply swamped with replies and thoughts on what you would think would be a pretty old mundane subject.

Well the flood hasn’t dried up as we are still getting emails and phone calls. So I really would like to thank everybody who has helped out.

In particular I would like to mention Wendy Andrew, Tim Williams, Tim Cottrell, Sue Buxton, Sonia Davies, Nicola McPherson, Lynnette Chapman, Lee Woolston, Karen Hedges, Gill Pugh, David Dickinson, Carla Palmer, Ann Cartwright, Anita Borgardts, Peter Donegan, Ruth Huxley, Sue Williams and John Gaddes who all sent invaluable tips and thoughts. My apoligies to anyone I missed, it really has kept me busy.

I have already put one contribution from John Gaddes on our website. Please click here to read the article >>

Another email from Kym Hirons, a Research Manager for Hertfordshire County Council, has caught my eye so I thought I would share it with you as well. Here’s what Kym had to say:

“Hello Rod

Good to hear from you.

Here are my thoughts on what makes a good research report.
