Research output: Contribution to journalSpecial issuepeer-review


Practitioner research has received growing attention across a number of professional fields, including health, social services and education. Supporting the development of practitioner research raises a series of important political questions addressed by the authors: how should projects and initiatives be sponsored; how are research questions best shaped; what arrangements exist for ongoing project support; and how are findings best shared? Drawing on two practitioner research initiatives from New Zealand and Scotland, this article points towards the opportunities and challenges of collaborative knowledge production within practice settings.
