Action Research

Editors Hilary Bradbury, Case Western Reserve University, USA and Peter Reason, University of Bath, UK

Action Research is a new international, interdisciplinary, refereed journal which is a forum for the development of the theory and practice of action research. The journal publishes quality articles on accounts of action research projects, explorations in the philosophy and methodology of action research, and considerations of the nature of quality in action research practice.

“Action Research will offer a greatly-needed forum at a time of growing recognition around the world that engagements between researchers and practitioners are central to, generating both new knowledge and innovations in practice relevant to many critical problems.” L. David Brown Harvard University, USA

A new issue of Action Research has been made available:

Volume 3, Number 1 ? March 2005

Handbook of Action Research
Participative Inquiry and Practice
Edited by Peter Reason and Hilary Bradbury

`This is an excellent book for helping professionals and students on undergraduate and postgraduate research courses. It is an essential purchase for understanding the inter-relationship between the `thinkers’ and `doers’ engaged in investigating and understanding the society in which researchers live’ – European Journal of Social Work

?The Handbook of Action Research is truly a remarkable book. We are greatly indebted to the editors Peter Reason and Hilary Bradbury, who managed to avoid the usual tower of Babel, and succeeded to forge and orchestrate the somewhat incoherent mosaic of action research, with its many voices, into an intelligent comprehensive and logical whole. This handbook provides a much needed clarification of a critical transition in the social sciences’ – Hans van Beinum, General Editor of Concepts and Transformation, International Journal of Action Research and Organizational Renewal.
