Summary

The Second Edition of this bestselling text once again explores the philosophical underpinnings, history, and key elements of each of five qualitative inquiry traditions: narrative research, phenomenology, grounded theory, ethnography, and case study. Written in an accessible style, this book relates research designs to each of the traditions of inquiry. The author compares theoretical frameworks, ways to employ standards of quality, and strategies for writing introductions to studies, collecting data, analyzing data, writing a narrative, and verifying results. New to the Second Edition: - Broader coverage of narrative research - Updated coverage of data analysis, which accounts for programs like Atlas.ti and NVivo, and discusses counting codes more fully - More specific steps for doing research within each tradition
