- In 2009, as part of his scholarship in research and evaluation methods, Michael Holosko sampled three top empirical journals over the years 2005, 2006, and 2007. He was interested in their actual designs, their uniqueness, and related methodological issues such as the statistics used, whether they were research versus non-research studies, and whether they had outcomes specified within them. Having published in the field himself, he took the strident position of refusing to apologise for the designs used in social work research and evaluation, because information from such studies does produce important knowledge, and thus directs and informs day-to-day practice. How we actually present research and evaluation knowledge to our professionals is tabled in this case study, as well as a set of methodological strategies offered for social work researchers and evaluators, to constructively offset their design concerns.
