We would like to thank
all those dedicated researchers whose work has been described
here and who have made this project possible. We apologise
to the many who have not been mentioned and would be grateful
to hear about any work that might be added to our summaries.
The volume of research that has been carried out into school
bullying over the past 15 years means that we have had to
be selective. Our choice is informed, but personal. We hope
sincerely that any researchers who feel that their work should
be included will contact us. Go to the previous page and follow
the 'feedback' link.
When selecting which
items to include, preference has been given to recent research
carried out in Scotland. We have also included summaries of
significant research undertaken outside Scotland where English
language reports are readily available.
