9781611321074: Do It Yourself Social Research, Third Edition

With the rapid growth of collaborative, indigenous, and community-based research, one of the key challenges researchers face is finding an effective way of involving non-researchers in the research process. Do It Yourself Social Research has been a best-selling methodology guide for action research projects and community groups in Australia for almost three decades. Always emphasizing the importance of a spirit of inquiry, it demystifies the research process, covering where to start, how to manage a research project, what methods, techniques and resources to use, and interpretation, analysis and reporting. This third edition has been thoroughly revised, adding the use of narrative and dialogue in research, rich research design, and what digital technology can (and can’t) contribute to the research process. With its hands-on, no-nonsense approach, Do It Yourself Social Research is an essential resource for community groups, college students, and other novice researchers in health, social welfare, education and related areas.

About the Author:

Yoland Wadsworth is a path-breaker in methodology and use of social research in health, community and human services. She is Adjunct Professor in the Centre for Applied Social Research, RMIT University; Principal Fellow in the McCaughey VicHealth Centre for Mental Health and Community Wellbeing, University of Melbourne; and Distinguished Fellow in the Action Research Center, University of Cincinnati.

Review:

“Practical in its content, sophisticated in its ideas, the book shows a passion for making social science a tool of democracy. I know of nothing else that is half as good.”<br>—Professor Raewyn Connell, University of Sydney

“This is a first-rate text. Students had one problem with it; because it was not turgid like other texts they felt it lacked sufficient depth. It was only when they were into their research that they understood what a great reference it is.”<br>—Richard A. Couto, Union Institute and University

“...incredibly useful.”<br>—Elizabeth Reid, United Nations Development Program, New York

“No jargon, no mystification...not patronising. Experienced and new social researchers alike will certainly feel more secure and must do better research as a result of this publication.”<br>—Australian Journal of Social Issues
