Creativity is at the heart of successful research, yet researchers are rarely taught how to manage their creative process, and modern academic life is not structured to optimize creativity. Creativity in Research provides concrete guidance on developing creativity for anyone doing or mentoring research. Based on a curriculum developed at Stanford University's Hasso Plattner Institute of Design, this book presents key abilities that underlie creative research practice through a combination of scientific literature on creative confidence, experiential exercises, and guided reflection. By focusing attention on how research happens as well as its outputs, researchers increase their ability to address research challenges and produce the outputs they care about. Simultaneously, they may also transform their emotional relationship with their work, replacing stress and a harsh inner critic with a more open and emotionally empowered attitude.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'This book strikes an excellent balance between research and practice. It is perfect for people who draw on research findings to improve their research, which should be everyone. The authors get full marks for doing their homework and identifying a range of specific methods, justified by research, that will indeed support the creativity of researchers.' Mark A. Runco, Director of Creativity Research and Programming, Southern Oregon University
'The goals, content, and clarity of this book are excellent. The chapters offer compelling insights and hands-on exercises for nurturing creativity in research. It will be a valuable and welcome contribution to the literature on promoting creativity among students and scholars working in several different fields.' Daniel Stokols, Chancellor's Professor Emeritus, University of California and author of Social Ecology in the Digital Age
'Creativity in Research is a resource I'll share with all my students and colleagues. It's incredibly useful for all of us.' Pamela Matson, Goldman Professor, Stanford University, California
