Research Methods: A practical guide for the social sciences is an essential resource for the social researcher, offering a comprehensive introduction for first time researchers right through to thorough and practical advice for those undertaking more advanced work. The book draws on real-life experiences from a wide variety of disciplines to show how theory translates into practice, and offers a rigorous analysis of why researchers choose the methods they use.

'Think about it' boxes throughout the text offer questions and ideas to help the researcher to focus on core issues and practical considerations, while your research summaries present questions, activities and checklists to help the researcher to develop their ideas. The book is supported by a fantastic companion website that contains learning materials, interactive exercises, videos, questionnaires, datasets and much more. The website can be found here.

Written to reflect the breadth of the social sciences, Research Methods: A practical guide for the social sciences is essential for anyone conducting research in sociology, health policy, social work, criminology, social policy, cultural studies, political studies, public policy and related fields.
