Celebrating Methods NCRM - Five years in


Since 2004 the National Centre for Research Methods has been working to improve the range and quality of research methods used by the UK social science research community. NCRM celebrated its first five years on Tuesday 21 April 2009. The evening reception was hosted at the British Academy in London and it gathered a large group of people across the social science research community with interests in methods.

As part of the celebration of the first five years the Methods Centre has produced a brochure highlighting its achievements so far. To view and/or download the brochure, please click on the brochure icon on the right.
