Work-based research: approaches to enquiry for insider-researchers.

Costley, Carol ORCID logoORCID:, Elliott, Geoffrey and Gibbs, Paul ORCID logoORCID: (2010) Work-based research: approaches to enquiry for insider-researchers. Sage, London. ISBN 9781848606784. [Book]


With the growth of practitioner research, this book leads the way by addressing key issues faced by ‘insider researchers’ – those doing research projects in the organizations and communities in which they themselves work, or where they are already familiar with the setting.

The authors explore the implications of these research contexts, and discuss approaches and methodologies that researchers in these contexts might adopt, with a particular focus on ethics - one of the key concerns for students undertaking a research project of this type.
