The Covid-19 pandemic has brought about significant changes to social research practices. The need for social distancing and restrictions to travel have particularly affected research that relies on establishing and maintaining a collaborative relationship with participants. This guide outlines alternative ways of conducting participatory research and how methods associated with participatory research might be adapted around the constraints of the pandemic. It also suggests how participatory methods may be used to either replace or supplement other research methods.

The guide is part of our 'Changing Research Practice: Undertaking social science research in the context of Covid-19' project.
