Designed for advanced undergraduate and graduate courses, Research from the Inside Out is an insider's guide to conducting empirically-based research. Showcasing eight research projects resulting in academic and professional papers, this practical supplementary text is an indispensable resource for those intending to further their academic studies in communication or other related social science disciplines. In the text, Thomas Hugh Feeley guides students as he looks under the hood of the entire research process, including the writing skills needed to present research accurately and convincingly for different audiences. Feeley provides real conversations with communication researchers, often quoting directly from interviews he conducted with them. Showing students and future researchers in communication what they learned during each of the eight exemplary studies, the researchers candidly reveal the pitfalls, discoveries, and synchronicities that can happen when conducting research.
