The Action Research Pearltree was created to help practitioners find their way around the many webpages covering the theory and practice of action research. The Pearltree has been organised so you can find readings, for example, on action research or on research project themes. Pearltrees is an online web application which as well as storing hyperlinks, allows you to add documents, notes and links to other Pearltrees, all of which are organised into sections.
