Just Published: Guidance for Researchers of Adolescent Sexual Health

Of interest for researchers:
A new commentary in the Journal of Adolescent Health that provides guidance on improving research methodology in adolescent sexual health research, with particular focus on how to identify and avoid assumptions about genders, bodies, sexuality, relating styles, and cultural norms commonly made by researchers.

This is a brief (only 2 journal pages) but informative piece that would be useful in research methods courses to give students a broad overview of critical thinking in research design or as a reference for researchers who wish to justify making methodological decisions that challenge problematic norms in research design, including quantitative, qualitative, and mixed methods research.

New release – Growing Up In Poverty: Findings from Young Lives

9781137404022Edited by Michael Bourdillon and Jo Boyden
Palgrave MacMillan, 2014

This new book brings together the latest findings from Young Lives on how poverty affects children’s development and how children and their families respond to poverty in their daily decisions and daily lives.

While the universalisaton of education now means that most children attend school, at least for a while, children from disadvantaged backgrounds often experience poor-quality education and learn least in school, creating inequality of opportunity.
