Researcher's paradigm: useful resources

Follow-up to Researcher’s paradigm from CES PHD Support Group

The nicest thing a fellow student could do is to share his/her resources. Especially when they give you the best of their resources, straight to the point, bite-sized and concise.

Well, this is exactly what our colleague Hessah did when she sent me a couple of book chapters on Researcher's paradigm and research philosophy. Her intension was to share these resources with other students (which I am gladly doing through this post).


So, here you will find some useful documents. I will be updating this blog post with more resources as soon as I come across any good ones.
