About the Author:

Dr Alison Jane Pickard is Head of Information and Communication Management and Director of Quality and Student Experience in the School of Computing, Engineering and Information Sciences at the University of Northumbria, where she is also Programme Leader for the new Professional Doctorate in Information Sciences. She teaches Research Methods in Information and Communication Management, Information Sciences, as well as other subject areas, and has project managed a number of JISC and AHRB research projects.

Review:

"This reference guide outlines the research process for students and practitioners in information studies, communications, records management, knowledge management, and related disciplines. It covers the three major research paradigms in information science, then reviewing the literature, defining the research, the proposal, sampling, ethics, research methods, the type of question the methods can be used for, and how to design it, including case studies, surveys, experimental research, Delphi studies, action research, historical research, and grounded theory. It also details data collection techniques (interviews, questionnaires, observation, diaries, and focus groups), and qualitative and quantitative data analysis and research presentation. The philosophy and theory behind the research is included only for context; emphasis is on the research process itself. This edition adds two chapters by guest authors on data research management and the analysis of existing documents. The chapters on usability testing and ethnography have been expanded to include netnography and other material." -- Reference and Research Book News
