This book is designed as a definitive guide to the sensitive and significant area of researching with children. It is based on the key academic concepts in the field and summarises the seminal papers and salient ethics, access and engagement issues. It provides real and up to date examples of research projects that have been conducted with children" how they were planned and designed, how consent was achieved, how the data was collated and analysed and the "equipment" used to facilitate the process.

The book is clearly structured into three sections:
  • What should be done before researching with children
  • What should be done during the research
  • What should be done once the research is complete
It will be a vital resource for students in Marketing, Business, Education and the Social Sciences whose projects and dissertations require research with children and adolescents. Equally it will be essential for experienced researchers, project managers and research supervisors in providing authoritative guidance as to what they MUST do in relation to research planning and design.
