Alasuutari, Pertti and Bickman, Leonard and Brannen, Julia, eds. (2009) The SAGE handbook of social research methods. London: Sage .

The SAGE Handbook for Social Research Methods charts the new and evolving terrain of social research methodology, covering qualitative, quantitative, and mixed methods in one volume

The Handbook includes chapters on each phase of the research process: research design, methods of data collection, and the processes of analyzing and interpreting data. As its editors maintain, there is much more to research than learning skills and techniques; methodology involves the fit between theory, research questions, research design, and analysis. The book also includes several chapters that describe historical and current directions in social research, debating crucial subjects such as qualitative versus quantitative paradigms, how to judge the credibility of types of research, and the increasingly topical issue of research ethics.
