SRA Journal:  'Social Research Practice'

'Social Research Practice' is an e-journal that the Social Research Association is launching in late 2015.  We welcome articles from anyone working in social research or social policy, whether as a producer or a user of research.

The overall aim of the journal is to encourage and promote high standards of social research for public benefit.  It will:

  • Cover the full range of approaches – quantitative, qualitative, mixed methods, and more
  • Focus mainly on methodological matters, but present findings if they are likely to be of wide interest
  • Cover practice-based, rather than pure academic, research (accepting that this is a loose distinction)
  • Feature applications and case studies which have practical value for research colleagues, rather than discuss philosophical principles and theory
  • Highlight the impact of research on practice and on policy
  • Show innovative techniques, while not excluding useful research based on more traditional methods
  • Encourage openness from authors, to describe learning from problems encountered
