    DescriptionMaking high-quality grant applications is easier when you know how research funding agencies work and how your proposal is used in the decision-making process. The Research Funding Toolkit provides this knowledge and offers a range of practical techniques to help you succeed in tough research funding competitions. A complex set of factors determine whether research projects win grants. This handbook helps you navigate these issues and identify your personal challenges to research grant success. The guidance also extends to the real-world challenges of grant-writing such as: obtaining the right feedback; dealing effectively with your employer and partner institutions, and making multiple applications as efficiently as possible. There are many sources that will tell you what a fundable research grant application looks like. Very few offer a step-by-step guide to writing one. The Toolkit handbook fills this gap with detailed advice on creating applications that are easy to read, easy to understand and convincing.

    Review quote
    This comprehensive book tackles one of the main issues an academic faces today - how to secure funding for research. With Research Council success rates falling and funding in general becoming more competitive this is a book postgraduate students, researchers and the professionals supporting them cannot do without Dr Louise Bright University of Glamorgan I'd certainly have no hesitation in recommending this book to researchers who want to improve their chances of getting funding, and also to new and to experienced research managers. In particular, academics who don't have regular access to research managers (or similar) and to experienced grant getters and givers at their own institution should consider this book essential reading if they entertain serious ambitions about obtaining research funding. Adam Golberg Social Science Research Funding 'The authors of The Research Funding Toolkit, guide the reader through constructing a grant application step by step, and succeed in providing a very useful tool for success in the research world. Although writing an application is often a daunting and dreaded task, this book is neither boring nor uninspiring: every page is clear and enjoyable, and includes a broad range of examples included from across many disciplines. Thirty-six examples are extracted from eight actual funded applications, covering a diverse selection of funding agencies in several countries. This book is a must-have for every researcher, whether junior or senior, and should be required reading for every member of a department. This book will allow readers to organize a workshop with research groups, with easy to follow steps exercises that Aldridge and Derrington suggest. The result will surely be an interesting and much-improved research proposal that will have high chances of obtaining that next grant' -- Simone Belli 20130704
