Dave Harris, "Literature Review and Research Design: A Guide to Effective Research Practice" (Routledge, 2019)


Listen to this interview of Dave Harris, a writing coach who uses principles from design to help authors develop writing practices. We talk about his book, Literature Review and Research Design: A Guide to Effective Research Practice (Routledge, 2019), and the ongoing conversation that is research.

Dave Harris : "And one of the important elements of thinking of your research as a conversation with your community of scholars is that the gaps in the literature are, to some extent, the things that others have left unsaid. So, we're in this conversation, and one person mentions an idea and they mention three factors of that idea, and there's a fourth factor that they didn't mention — well, that's your gap in the literature, and you jump in and you say, 'Well, we also want to talk about this fourth factor.'"

Clear your thoughts with Dave!
