Even as the pace of research increases, researchers do not exist in a bubble. Brilliantly attuned to the demands placed on today’s researchers—people who want to stay on top of their job and still have a life—this book considers how students, academics, and professionals alike can save time and stress without compromising the quality of their work. Drawing on interviews with researchers as well as the author’s extensive experience, this fully revised second edition of Helen Kara’s Research and Evaluation for Busy Practitioners provides a wealth of practical advice on a range of topics like using social media and the diversity of available methodologies, including action research, arts-based methods, and digitally mediated research. Comprehensive, global in its scope, and supportive, this second edition is also accompanied by a fully revised and updated companion website, http://policypress.co.uk/resources/kara-research.
