Product description


'Understanding the research process and the value of sport research should be a responsibility for all those engaged in the sport enterprise; academicians and practitioners alike. Ian Jones has provided a text that creates a common link between the two, so that researchers and sport practitioners can communicate in the theoretical and practical.'

Dr Ronald W. Quinn, Associate Professor, Department of Sport Studies, Xavier University, Cincinnati, USA

'Research Methods for Sports Studies is structured in an easy to follow, clearly written format providing a step-by-step roadmap for research. This is an essential text for students in how to do sport studies research. The supplementary resources will assist lecturers who are teaching sport studies research, and provide students with value adding learning resources.'

Professor Tracy Taylor, Business School Deputy Dean, University of Technology, Sydney, Australia

'Ian Jones has written a highly accessible introductory text for undergraduate sports students from a range of sport disciplines, who are about to embark on a substantial piece of research for the first time. Likewise, the book provides a structure by which lecturers and tutors can shape the delivery of research methods modules. The case study and supplementary material brings to life what can sometimes be a rather mundane endeavour.'

Dr Jimmy O'Gorman, Senior Lecturer in Sports Development, Edge Hill University, UK
