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
