Vince's general research interests revolve around the development of writing, spelling and reading.

He has held a number of research grants in this area with colleagues from other universities both in the UK and abroad.

Vince has also recently begun a programme of research investigating part time military Reservists. These have included funded projects examining Reservists family support, the adoption of a more intergrated full time and part time "Whole Force" approach to personnel in the military and the recruitment and retention of Reservists. He is working with colleagues from other UK universites and abroad on this work.
