Summary
"What is it really like to do social science research? In what ways can research go wrong and what can you do to put it right again? How do research methods and research ethics relate in practice? This is a 'how it went' rather than a 'how to do' research methods book. It is based upon the reflections and experiences of a wide range of established social researchers, the majority of whom undertake research in the field of health care. By drawing upon anecdotal accounts of setting up research projects, negotiating access, gathering data and disseminating findings, the book highlights the practical and ethical complexities involved in the conduct of empirically based research. By focussing upon the real-life experiences of social science researchers 'Reflections on Research' provides insight into the day-to-day realities of conducting research ' the pleasures and the pitfalls. As such, it is essential reading for all students and researchers in the social sciences as well as academics and professionals interested in research and research ethics." -- Publisher's website
