Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter (peer-reviewed)peer-review


By way of introduction to this edited volume on researching people and the sea, we discuss three key themes around which contributions to the book are organised. The first theme, ‘Experiences from the Field: Adapting Methods, Practices and Reflexivity’, delves into field-based data collection and embraces reflections on doing social science research. The second theme, ‘Windows into Particular Methods: Innovations and Traditions’, explores case examples of specific methods and discusses their application in marine and fisheries research contexts. The third theme, ‘Translating Across Disciplines and Policy’, deals with questions around interdisciplinarity and expertise exchange across the research-policy interface. All three themes highlight aspects of innovation in researching people and the sea.
