    Nearly 20% of the population has a disability. Despite this, mainstream research often does not explicitly address the methodological and practical issues that can act as barriers to disabled people’s participation in social research. In this book, Aidley and Fearon provide a concise, practical introduction to making it easier for everyone to take part in your research.

    Requiring no prior knowledge about accessible research methods, the book:

    • Explains how removing barriers to participation improves the quality of your research;

    • Covers the research process from design, to collecting data, to dissemination and publication;

    • Includes checklists and further readings, as well as useful examples and vignettes to illustrate how issues play out in practice.

    This book will be invaluable to researchers from a variety of backgrounds looking to increase participation in their research, whether postgraduate students, experienced academic researchers, or practitioners and professionals.

    Daniela Aidley is Professor in Business Psychology at the West Coast University of Applied Sciences, Heide.

    Kristine Fearon is Researcher in the Faculty of Health and Life Sciences at De Montfort University.
