Editorial Reviews


'The book is notably successful in the way it combines a review of the principles and methods of research with recent advances in the field... The editors' claim that it is core reading for those undertaking masters and doctoral level research is well met.' - School Leadership and Management

`In a competitive field of educational research methods this book offers those interested in educational leadership and management an alternative conceptualisation of research methods, and will no doubt help those researching in this field' - Gill Nicholls, British Journal of Educational Studies

`It can be strongly recommended as an introductory text for students engaged in virtually any field of educational research and readers of this journal should not be deterred by its specialist title' - Eric Hoyle, Escalate

`The attempt to contextualize methodology does make the work more accessible than other more general texts, and it will therefore be particularly useful to those beginning to develop a research approach to their professional context' - Sue Crowley, Learning and Skills Research

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book was OK in it's glossing over the key topics. but lacked the depth that anyone who is more than a few months into a doctoral program can use. it was an adequate overview, but highly unmemorable.
