Steps to engaging young children in research: the guide

Victoria Johnson (Editor), Roger Hart (Editor), Jennifer Colwell (Editor)

Research output: Other contribution


The researcher guide have been developed to support researchers to include young children in research; particularly children aged 5 to 8 years of age. While it has been designed to support those who are seeking to include young children in research for the first time it is hoped that the broad range of methods described will also be of value for more seasoned researchers. It does this by providinga six-step process for designing research and through systematically identifying and describing a range of methods that have been used with young children in diverse contexts around the world. Chapters are written by international academic and practitioner researchers.
