Action Research is a new, quarterly peer-reviewed journal offering a forum for participative, action-oriented inquiry. It aims to more firmly establish the legitimacy of action research in academia, and to forge links between academics and the various communities of action research practice. Coverage will include development, management, healthcare, education, social work and psychology; specific group interests, such as gender, race, sustainable development; and other cross-disciplinary interests which do not fit well within disciplinary journals. The aim of Action Research is to offer a forum for participative, action oriented inquiry. Our immodest aim is to help transform the very idea of social science, to create a dialogue which will contribute to developing a viable alternative to the dominant models of social science. As debates about the limits of a 'disinterested' social science continue we need an alternative form of inquiry into questions that are relevant to people in the conduct of their lives, their organizations and communities, and the wider ecology of which we are a part. With many schools, theories and practices, action research is an orientation to inquiry rather than a methodology as such. Action Research will encompass the wide range of domains in which action research is prominent, both academic and professional.
