Offering selected examples of research, all concerned in some way with nursing or the study of nursing, this text illustrates the kind of research that can be done by a small team or a single researcher, without large-scale research grants. The papers chosen cover a wide range of approaches, differing in emphasis on description or explanation, different degrees of structure in design and different appeals to the authority of science or the authenticity of emphatic exploration. They show the limitations typical of small-scale projects carried out with limited resources and the experience of applied research as it occurs in practice, as opposed to how it tends to look when discussed in textbooks.

Industry Reviews

"...it is really hard to find fault with what is presented...I recommend this book wholeheartedly. It will be thought- provokingto many, including tutors and students of educationalpolicy...I wouldencourage anyone working in HE to read it since it does much to explain the situation in which we find ourselves." - Assessment & Evaluation in Higher Education "The book isdesigned to provoke debate and it assuredly will, but the debate willbe one that throws more light than heat on the problems in question, because the book is written with sensitivity to the susceptibilities of traditional academics as well as of captains of industry. The authors are all expert in their fields and they write well." - The New Academic
