The team behind the Changing Research Practices project is calling for participants to join in the third phase of the initiative.

Launched in 2020, the project looks at how the COVID-19 pandemic has affected research practices.

Participants in the new phase will join three mutually supportive workshops (held between November 2021 and March 2022) and have the option to contribute to a journal special issue.

The study asks, “How productive is uncertainty for research methods?” and will generate important evidence on methodological responses to crises and uncertainty. Ideally, participants will be leading funded projects at their early stages.

Those interested in taking part should submit an expression of interest (one-two pages in length) to Robert Meckin: robert.meckin@manchester.ac.uk

Expressions of interest should detail: your role, affiliation, research project, methodological plans and suggestions for what you could contribute to learning about the relationship between methods and uncertainty.
