I am not sure of the exact rules on sharing, but I have a blog that sociologists and criminologists might find interesting. Many posts cater to students by presenting topics from unique or critical perspectives. There are also posts about APA style citation, and more.

I provided a link to my post about labeling theory, which initiated my love for all things criminology.

Please check it out and let me know how it can be improved/what you think.

A valuable reference to help practising researchers not only to understand but also to apply innovative approaches to social work research.

Featuring extended case studies of actual research projects, the book provides an overview of a number of central features and qualities of social work research. It incorporates both distinctive methodological features, such as approaches to participatory inquiry, and provides accounts of researcher strategies to address particular challenges, such as carrying out studies with hard to reach populations. This book combines important methodological insights with pragmatic guidance on commonly experienced problems and how these challenges can be overcome.

This is a key resource for social work and social care students, social work practitioners and academics engaged in research.
