The current paper offers some simple tips for budding researchers on how to get the best out of their “Pitching Research” [Faff (2015, 2019)] experience. These tips are built upon three basic perspectives. First, WHAT? Here, the framework is briefly outlined and mapped into a simple “question vs. answer” mindset. Second, WHY? Here, I spell out some simple insights as to why the elements of the framework are included, in the way that they are included and what you miss out (or “risk”) by overlooking any of them. Third, HOW? Here, the framework is portrayed as a dynamic recursive exercise, in which the user should strive for a convergence of coherent thoughts.
