Research output: Book/ReportAnthologyResearchpeer-review


Social work research has gathered a greater transparency and clarity of identity in North American and parts of Europe. Furthermore, the rapid emergence of social work research in other European countries, China, India, Japan and elsewhere in Asia and Pacific Rim countries, and gradually in South America, has created a need for a collection that can contribute to both shaping and making accessible key and sometimes hard-to-access sources.

This four-volume collection answers this need, bringing together key literature in a single resource and structuring it into thematic volumes to enable clear understanding of the different aspects involved in the research.

Volume One: Historical Trajectories, Purposes and Key Concepts
Volume Two: Key Decisions about Research Strategy
Volume Three: The Practice of Social Work Research
Volume Four: The Contexts of Social Work Research
