Social Research Methods and Design

“A lecture on diaries in social research by Graham R Gibbs taken from a series on research methods and research design given to masters (graduate) students at the University of Huddersfield. This is part 2 of two, and examines the use of researcher promoted diaries as a form of data collection. Diaries are good ways of collecting data about everyday activities over short periods of time, but may suffer from poor completion rates.”
