Beschreibungen

An important book by researchers from across disciplines introducing varying ideas on research, important in these days of inter-disciplinary and multi-centered investigation. <p>The book introduces academics to new areas of endeavour and encourages researchers and students to think broadly when devising their studies. Linking chapters present the contributions in an historical and theoretical context, identifying the themes between the approaches, and encourages new thinking about old problems. Includes contributions from leading researchers across the quantitative-qualitative spectrum, from marine biology to spirituality.</p> <p>With funding under increasing pressure, the different views will help departments form new alliances and encourage interdisciplinary working.</p>

""A celebration of research approaches" is an apt and accurate depiction of the debate laid before the reader of this text." (<i>Accident and Emergency Nursing Journal</i>, October 2007)
Edited by <b>John Atkinson,</b> Associate Dean, University of Paisley, UK and <p><b>Professor Malcolm Crowe</b>, Associate Dean, University of Paisley, UK</p>
Research methodologies and approaches to research, tend to vary between academic disciplines and common themes are often neglected. This book grew out of experience in organising a research degree supervision course at the University of Paisley and was based on discussions about the similarities and differences between research approaches and the value of multi-perspective studies. <p><i>Interdisciplinary Research</i> introduces academics to new areas of endeavour and encourages researchers and students to think broadly when devising their studies. Linking chapters present the contributions in an historical and theoretical context, identifying the themes between the approaches. <i>Interdisciplinary Research</i> thus encourages new thinking about old problems.</p> <p>This book is ideal for research activists, especially those involved in education institutions and research degrees.</p>
