This paper recognises practice-based research as an interpretative, non-dualist activity reflecting, implicitly for most, the dialectic nature of human experience and experiencing. It argues that the failure to explicitly acknowledge and appreciate this impedes acceptance of research through practice as a legitimate form of research, simultaneously creating confusion and frustration for research students and supervisors.Current reliance on and recourse to models of research, education and practice that overtly favour dualist, deterministic models of human interaction and knowledge are understood to compound these difficulties.

Search Google Scholar™

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. 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.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
