HiSS Research Methods Community

These meetings were set up as a new initiative in January that we hoped will encourage the sharing of best practice from colleagues across the School. The aim is to learn about methods, share ideas of research, and help each other with methodological methods.

We want to re-introduce our Research Methods Community sessions on a monthly basis and we need your help to do it.
