Don Webber expertly compiles responses from different research environments and practices across a range of universities, succinctly summarising those that achieve better quality research output. Highlighting collective practices as well as individual ones, he further illustrates the responsibilities placed upon academics for their own research alongside those of their peers and how these can have considerable mutual benefits.

Research leaders who wish to have a high performing department will find this book insightful in gaining ideas on how to enable their colleagues to achieve their full potential.
Critical Acclaim
‘How to Enhance Your Research: 100 Practical Tips for Academics is an extraordinary and exceptionally well organized and presented combination of instructional guide and How to manual for doing original research on any subject. Thoroughly “user friendly” and an ideal textbook for research skills curriculums, the book a unique and unreservedly addition to personal, professional, community college, and university library Education and Sociology collections.’
– John Taylor, Midwest Book Review

‘Academia, while immensely rewarding, can be a pretty tough gig, particularly for junior researchers. In this book, Professor Webber, based on years of experience across countries and institutions, provides a very accessible set of tips to make the academic journey less daunting and more enjoyable. A delightfully free-flowing read, with many nuggets of quality information, for new and established academics as well as research leaders – a book that could easily become a staple on an academic’s bookshelf.’
– Gail Pacheco, Auckland University of Technology, New Zealand
