"This book is very accessible due to its broad perspective and practical approach. ...a clear overview of the sequence of steps that need to be taken in order to complete a dissertation project." International Journal of Accounting 52 (2017) 297–298


Research Methods for Accounting and Finance is an essential text for accounting and finance students undertaking research for the first time. It demystifies the research process by providing the novice researcher with a must-have guide through all of the stages of the research process, from identifying a research topic to the finished project. Jargon-free and written in a user-friendly style, it utilises a variety of methods to carefully link the subject matter and topics.
Packed with appropriate examples and reflective exercises to support skills and knowledge development, each chapter includes a useful reference list and suggested further readings. It offers a comprehensive overview of key research methods and the choices available when undertaking research in accounting and finances. It includes:
  • an exploration of the nature and scope of research within the disciplines of accounting and finance;
  • how to identify a suitable research project and the importance of understanding and contextualising your research ideas via a thorough literature review;
  • which type of research most suitable to undertake and the researcher’s choice of data collection method;
  • an analysis of qualitative and quantitative research methods – and which is more appropriate for your study;
  • ethical issues and research codes of practice and advice on the writing process.

To help support their learning, readers have access to a range of online resources including chapter-by-chapter multiple choice questions which will enable them to assess how well they have grasped individual chapters. The text also features a range of supplementary readings, in text exercises and cases/examples to help bring concepts to life. Visit www.goodfellowpublishers/rmforacc for details.
