Are Academics Irrelevant? Roles for Scholars in Participatory Research.
American Behavioral Scientist, v42 n5 p840-54 Feb 1999
Discusses three approaches to participatory research typically followed by academics: (1) initiator, (2) consultant, and (3) collaborator. Argues that participatory research is part of a larger community-change project, and that determining how academics will fit in the project requires answering several questions about the nature of individual projects and academics.
