The primary aim of Writing Research is to create a frame of reference for writing research from a number of approaches to inquiry; and for a number of purposes. The content is directed to identifying principles for writing from within commonly used methodologies and methods in health research, which will guide writers to transform research data into written forms. The emphasis will be on the writing task, not on how to conduct the research, which follows after research data has been collected. The explanatory aspects of the content of the book will assist researchers in the development of research proposals and those who critique or review research for any purpose.
