The Research Process in the Human Services: Behind the Scenes (Print)
In this book, Alexander and Solomon have compiled twenty original research articles (previously published in a wide range of respected journals) that illustrate different methodological approaches and issues in developing and implementing community-based research, with a range of vulnerable respondents, of different ages, from a range of minority groups. Among service populations included are those who are homeless, have substance abuse problems, are severely mentally ill, and are involved with the child welfare and criminal justice systems. Each article is accompanied by original commentaries by the reprinted articles' authors, in which they describe how and why they came to do the research; concerns in the design and conduct of the study; their own views about the strengths and limitations of the research; advice about future research in the area; and human subjects' issues, including working with IRBs. Through this presentation, the text documents the lived experience of doing research, including its challenges, as well as its joys.
