She is Editor-in-Chief of the SAGE Journal of Early Childhood Research and author of over fifty publications on aspects of early childhood education.

Review:

Justifying why this is one of the best books around on methodology is easy when the author′s own students provide that evidence. Clough and Nutbrown′s 3rd edition provides an important book for undergraduate, masters and doctoral students in education and the wider social sciences. This book will not only increase creative and critical capacities of researchers, but increase understandings of how pervasive methodology is when making findings public within the research process
Dr. Richard Race
Senior Lecturer in Education, Roehampton University

Finally, a book that clearly distinguishes methodology from methods. Excellent layout which aids comprehension. Great for the novice and competent researcher
Karen Wild
Lecturer in Nursing, Keele University

A fresh approach to research. Students will enjoy the activities and examples of what research can be

This interactive and refreshing text guides researchers to address methodology pervasively. The authors want to help research bring about change - in the researcher, the researched and the user
Prof. Collette Tayler
The University of Melbourne

Simplicity and clarity are the hallmarks of this book, with a strong student orientation in writing style, content and reader aids. One is spoken to, rather than down to, and each chapter includes useful activities, summeries and references.

Written in clear language, this book contains figures and tables enabling readers to visualise key ideas. Activities throughout encourage students to reflect and engage with the ideas discussed, thereby making this guide highly interactive. Though aimed at students doing dissertations, it will be useful for any general practitioner/reader entering the field of research or undertaking qualitative social research.
