Research Methods book series

Published in association with Palgrave Macmillan. Series now closed.

Established in 2009, the Research Methods series aimed to link the ECPR’s Methods School with its publishing programme. Edited by the then Convenors of the Methods School (encompassing the Winter- and Summer Schools in Methods and Techniques), the series published on cutting edge research methods to complement and in some examples, accompany the teaching at the Methods School. Nine books were published in total in the series, listed below. 

Whilst this series is now closed it is still possible to buy copies of the books through the Palgrave Macmillan website. The ECPR Press took over the ECPR’s publishing activity in this field and welcomes book proposals. For more information about publishing with the ECPR Press see the website.
