Abstract

As the title suggests, this book is about both quantitative and qualitative research methodologies. It is not a ‘technical’ research methodology textbook. Instead it provides a conceptual discussion of the main themes of social science research. The student is supplied with a systematic coverage of a full range of topics related to research in the social sciences.

Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
