Abstract

The second part of the project involved an audit of research capacity of UK Social Work Educators. Both the ESRC demographic survey (Mills et al, 2005) and the JUC SWEC Research Strategy (see Orme & Powell, 2007) raised issues about the capacity and capability of academic researchers. The aim of this strand of the study is therefore to scope the research capacity of social work academics. Objectives (from the proposal) The objectives of this audit were to investigate: i. the research skills and qualifications of social work academics; ii. the extent and balance of activity between research and pedagogical activities; iii. the support available to social work academics to undertake research; and iv. the nature of relationships between academics' characteristics and those of their institutions' in respect of research.
