One of our DPhil students, Lucy Robinson has had one of her research methods – the self portrait and relational map – published by the National Centre for Research Methods (NCRM). The publication includes details on the method, a step-by-step guide and a recommended reading list. Creative data generation methods like the ones used by Lucy are a valuable tool for qualitative researchers studying complex social phenomena. They can also support more inclusive research practice and offer the researcher the opportunity to explore an individual’s experiences more deeply than through speech alone.

“It’s been a brilliant experience to write for the NCRM and have the opportunity to share one of my research methods with a wider audience. I hope my tutorial will encourage and inspire others to use creative data generation methods in their own research”, said Lucy.
