This chapter considers several methodological topics in Individual Placement and Support (IPS) research. The chapter is divided into two main sections. The first section outlines the steps in establishing a program of research and clarifying some choices made in IPS research. The second section examines many critical details in the planning and execution of research. Evidence-based practices are scientifically validated interventions that help people with mental illnesses to achieve improvements in meaningful areas of their lives. Developing and establishing an evidence-based practice requires attention to scientific detail, considerable time, and multiple steps. The major steps are: articulation of the problem area, identification of possible treatments, pilot testing the intervention, and controlled evaluation of the intervention. The planning and execution of a successful study requires creativity, attention to detail, and persistence. Some of the strategic choices in designs, control groups, sampling, measures, and data collection procedures that are prominent in the research are described.

Keywords:   Individual Placement and Support, research, evidence-based practice, planning, execution, mental illness
