Research with Children: Methodological Issues and Innovative Techniques
Fargas-Malet, Montserrat; McSherry, Dominic; Larkin, Emma; Robinson, Clive
Journal of Early Childhood Research, v8 n2 p175-192 2010
In the past few decades, a growing body of literature examining children's perspectives on their own lives has developed within a variety of disciplines, such as sociology, psychology, anthropology and geography. This article provides a brief up-to-date examination of methodological and ethical issues that researchers may need to consider when designing research studies involving children; and a review of some of the methods and techniques used to elicit their views. The article aims to encourage researchers to critically reflect on these methodological issues and the techniques they choose to use, since they will have implications for the data produced.
