We explore a wide range of questions about research and research methods, including:
* What counts as 'good research'?
* Research approaches, paradigms, methods and methodology: what are they and what is the difference?
* What is the so-called 'qualitative/ quantitative'?
* When and where is quantitative research indispensable?
* If one suggests that research should be 'scientific' what does that mean?
* What methods and methodologies are used in social research?
* What is the role of statistics in social and behavioural research? How should statistical evidence be interpreted?
* What are the ways in which research can, and should, be disseminated and presented?
This book is aimed as much at the reflective, researching professional as for the professional researcher.
