The application process

Thomas F. Hilton, Carl G. Leukefeld

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


This chapter dives deeply into the application process, which can seem a lot like touring a sausage factory. However, understanding the whole complicated process helps you to think strategically from the moment you get a great idea for a study. We include topics such as planning, hypothesis development, assembling resources and a project team, as well as suggestions for how to avoid handicapping your application with an overly burdensome budget.
