This Handbook offers an insightful journey through the landscape of research methods used to study the phenomenon of creativity, addressing the maturation of creativity research and its methodological approaches.

Offering a methodological panorama for the global community of creativity researchers, contributors provide markers and viewpoints to better orient scholars and encourage reflection on how one might produce exceptional research on the burgeoning field of creativity. Chapters provide insights into a variety of methodological approaches, contemplating their benefits, limitations, scope of validity and ethical implications. As a contrast, sharp and to the point vignettes, similar to parables, are included to make the reader think.

Allowing space for both established methods and new approaches, this Handbook is crucial reading for researchers interested in creativity at all levels looking to adopt innovative methodological approaches and broaden their research horizons.
