The Handbook of Research Methods in Careers serves as a comprehensive introduction to the methodologies that researchers use in the careers domain. As a phenomenon of study, careers have unquestionably become more rich, dynamic, and complex than ever before. Our authors present their methods in detail and offer numerous actionable best practices, realistic previews, and even cautionary tales based on their vast collective experience publishing in this area. The Handbook showcases the diverse and interdisciplinary approaches to designing projects and studying careers across the spectrum of quantitative and qualitative methodologies. Together, the 57 authors who contributed to this Handbook represent institutions and organizations across 13 countries from a range of disciplinary training and an even wider range of national origins. The diversity inherent in our authorship reflects the diversity in careers research itself and provides further evidence of the rich heritage and future of the careers field.

Many textbooks on HRM and Industrial Relations combine discursive, prescriptive, theoretical and sometimes a critical synthesis of the practical applications of abstract concepts and ideas. As a field of study, HRM covers a wide remit associated with work, employment and organizational studies. Academic disciplines overlap between sociology, economics, law, history or industrial and organisational psychology (among others) (Boxall and Purcell, 2016; Wilkinson et al., 2017, 2019; Bratton and Gold, 2019). Most approaches have the admirable aim of synthesising information and concepts to impart a degree of knowledge. Some even seek to contrast alternative or differing interpretations of such knowledge with demonstration through models, frameworks, contemporary innovations that relate to evolving contexts and scenarios for application.
