Practice research is a general term for research processes whereby politicians, organizations, managers, professionals, and service users/clients collaborate to carry out research projects with the aim of qualifying and developing practice in a given field. Practice research is called by many names and characterized in different ways: practice-near or practice-based research (Epstein, 2001; Froggett & Briggs, 2012), interactive research (Kildedal, 2011), collaborative research (Anaquot, 2008), cocreational research (Reimers & Paluch, 2015), practitioner research (Shaw, 2005), and practice research (Austin et al., 2014; Ramian, 2003; Uggerhøj, 2011, 2016). Practice research is, hence, one name among many characterizing the same kind of collaborative research processes mentioned at the start of this entry. Practice research and action research are often linked because they include comparable elements.
