Other TitlesUsing longitudinal research in public management evaluation
AbstractThis article argues that there are considerable benefits in using longitudinal research in public management and public policy research. Evaluation research (and UK public management research more generally) still pre-eminently utilizes a short-term perspective, preventing the value of longitudinal, rich data being realized. We argue that longitudinal research develops a deeper contextual approach, and will demonstrate how such methodologies can enhance research endeavours through an extended temporality.
