Editorial Reviews


'Research Methods in Education contains much theoretical material, but this is supported by many practical examples and down-to-earth guidance. It is very clearly written, and demystifies the theory aspects of education research. The 200 pages of supplementary material are particularly practically focused, and are a substantial improvement on the previous edition of the book - if you already have a copy of the 5th edition, I would suggest you consider upgrading ... If you plan to undertake serious educational research in your discipline, Research Methods in Education is an invaluable addition to your bookshelf.' - Bioscience Education, The Higher Education Academy

'This great book (in both senses) now reaches its sixth edition - and that marks real progress ... The strength of the book remains its highly detailed account of many research methods. This new edition sees that account taken yet further - with new contents of w-based research as well as on sampling, interviews and surveys, and extra on various other kinds of approach.' - British Journal of Educational Technology

'I believe 'Research Methods in Education' is a very impressive volume. Detailed, instructive,rigorous, engaging; graduate students as well as their professors will surely learn a lot from it' - International Journal of Research and Method in Education

I bought the Kindle version of this a few years ago and I have found it to be a useful textbook on a variety of educational research methods. I would normally rate it with 4 stars; however, I just made the mistake of applying the "update" ("corrected version") and now I really regret it! The current Kindle book does NOT have a Table of Contents (TOC)! It looks like they accidentally replaced the TOC with a list of figures ("boxes"), but without a TOC, a reference textbook like this is basically unusable!

The version they originally provided said it was optimized for MobiPocket PDA, and while it didn't have the best formatting (odd font, bullet lists were a little ugly, etc.), it was at least usable and had a TOC. If anyone knows how to get Amazon to undo an ebook update, please share! Assuming Amazon gets updates directly from the publisher, I just wrote Routledge via their feedback website and will update this review if/when they reply.

UPDATE 1 (12-Mar-2015): I received a nice reply from the publisher this morning. They said it needs an additional revision to get the TOC included in the Kindle version and hope to get it updated and uploaded to Amazon by the end of next week.

UPDATE 2 (30-Jun-2015): The publisher said they had provided Amazon with the updated version on 8-April-2015; however, Amazon sat on it until I contacted them yesterday, and only then did they make the update available to me. Fortunately, the TOC is back, they used a much better font (previously it was all in italics), and the bullet lists are fixed (except when viewing it in the Kindle Cloud Reader, which seems to run them all together).

I used it for developing my research project, it is a good tool with a lot of examples, also it is a easy book to read.
