Criminology Skills covers both criminological study skills and research skills in one volume, giving you the skills you need to succeed in the study of criminology. A three-part structure covers finding source materials, academic skills, study skills, and research methodology, guiding you through a range of skills and methods which you will need to practise and demonstrate in your degree. Topics covered include finding and evaluating criminological resources, referencing and avoiding plagiarism, preparing for exams, planning a research project, data analysis and much more.

Criminology Skills first helps you to establish a strong and comprehensive skills foundation before building to a more advanced level, increasing your competence and confidence with which to approach projects. The text is accompanied by an innovative and dynamic Online Resource Centre which includes practical exercises, animated walk-throughs showing how to use online databases, and activities to help test your understanding of ethical considerations and of the differences between quantitative and qualitative research methods.
