Social Research Practice:

  • Covers quantitative, qualitative, mixed methods approaches and more
  • Focuses mainly on methodological matters, but presents findings if likely to be of wide interest
  • Covers practice-based, rather than pure academic research (loose distinction)
  • Features applications and case studies which have practical value for research colleagues, rather than philosophical principles and theory
  • Highlights the practice and policy impact of research 
  • Shows innovative techniques, but also useful research using traditional methods
  • Encourages openness from authors to describe learning from problems encountered
