Couverture de l’ouvrage Practising Research
An indispensable guide to conducting research in the social sciences

Looking beyond the traditional boundaries of quantitative and qualitative research, this is an illuminating and accessible guide to thinking about the role of the researcher ? who they are, what they do, and how they shape their own practice. Written by an expert with many years' experience of teaching and research, it will help both novice and expert readers to assess and affect their own impact on their methodology and findings.

A key introductory text suitable for students and early-career researchers working across the social and behavioural science. This book will be an essential reference for anybody who wishes to reflect on and develop their research skills.

1. Why is the Researcher Important?.- 2. Researcher Positionality.- 3. Researcher as Instrument.- 4. Team Based Research.- 5. Researching the Self, Researching Oneself.- 6. Researcher Identity: Prospects and Challenges.
