Phase I report
This is the main report from the first phase of the project, which had two aims: to engage the research community (within and beyond the academy) in learning and sharing positive methodological responses to, and possibilities within, the constraints of Covid-19 measures when conducting social research; to synthesise the evidence available to the research community on how social research methods have been successfully adapted for, or may work within, pandemic conditions.
Phase I rapid evidence review
This review synthesises evidence available in academic publications from 2020 with the aim of charting how social research methods have been successfully adapted for, or designed for use within, the pandemic conditions of Covid-19.
