I would highly recommend this book as it is easy to understand and covers all the main issues of social research.
Great resource book for introductory research methods. Students really like the chapters.
This text is a valuable reference for social science research. The section on analysis and interpretation of evidence is particularly valuable as it affords opportunities for students to consider how they might want to organise their research design differently in order to draw upon a wider range of analysis methods, that are often less represented in other texts.
This is an excellent text used to navigate students through the research process required for their ethical proposal and dissertation.
Excellent book that is a vital component of any social research methods class. Covers a wide array of research topics in an accessible format.
Comprehensive text. Particularly interesting was the chapter on paradigms. Not as practical as expected, however, content is good.
This is an easy to read to text and I have adopted this as one of the key essential texts for this unit.
Interesting mid-level discussion of research methods; includes examples from my field (education) but they are situated within the larger context of social science research. Thanks for this one!
Give a great all round review of all aspects of social science, and despite its focus on sociology it appears generally applicable to other aspects of social sciences.
Under the current course design, this book, whilst an excellent text, is a step too far too soon for the students and can act only as a terciary reading text... which, if I am being honest, means it will be barely looked at. Consequently, whilst included in the reading list I cannot see it being used by anyone but me. The module is undr review though (for expansion) and it may take on greater promenance in the wider design.
excellent selection of topics - good for advanced masters students
Very clear, useful articles, especially for postgraduate students. Especially useful is the Bryman chapter 'End of the Paradigm Wars'.
Useful texts for understanding the different social research methods.
simple to use and highly effective, especially for higher degree level.
This book is useful as a reference guide for some of our students and would recommend that they can dip in and out of it, but it explores a range of issues and at level 2, i think some of the other text books are more accessible, such as the Henn, Weinstein and Foard book and also O leary. However, the book will remain on the reading list as supplemental for various sessions.
This title is also available on SAGE Knowledge, the ultimate social sciences online library. If your library doesn’t have access, ask your librarian to start a trial.
