SRA journal guidelines

'Social Research Practice':

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