Abstract This Handbook provides a comprehensive picture of research methods and research practices in the health and social sciences. Embracing both traditional research methodologies alongside emerging, innovative ways of doing research, it offers detailed, authoritative accounts of doing cross-cultural research, research with different groups of people including young people and marginalised groups, and the research methods and evidence-based practices that have become prominent themes in health and social care. In addition to the philosophical foundations and political implications of social and health sciences research it includes practical chapters explaining how to collect and analyse data, make sense of research findings, and present these findings in the most meaningful ways to different audiences. In the context of a global surge in interest in and in the teaching of research methods, The Handbook of Research Methods in Health Social Sciences presents students, researchers, teachers and practitioners with a truly comprehensive guide to research approaches across qualitative, quantitative and mixed methodologies, and across disciplines from public health to sociology, criminology, nursing, social work and beyond.
