Summary

Education in emergencies (EiE) is both a research “field in its infancy” and a rapidly “emerging field” (Tomlinson & Benefield, 2005). This scoping study reviews a wide range of academic articles and grey literature in the education in emergencies field to map current and past research methodologies used by academics and practitioners. It identifies the unique successes and gaps in the evidence base in order to support future academics and practitioners in conducting and documenting research. This study concludes that ensuring sound ethical and rigorous reflective research practices is critical to fill research gaps and to move EiE from infancy to a well-developed, reputable research field.
