Book Description :

Qualitative Research helps those who have limited experience of qualitative research, to become proficient buyers of research. It will enable buyers to commission QR with confidence; to choose a supplier, agree a methodology with the research agency, understand the process and end up with useful outputs which address the initial research issues. It will help train new practitioners in terms of the basics of qualitative research and it will also develop the knowledge and understanding of more experienced qualitative researchers. Qualitative research explores questions such as what, why and how, rather than how many or how much; it is primarily concerned with meaning rather than measuring. Understanding why individuals and groups think and behave as they do lies at the heart of qualitative research, and market research practitioners and students of market research will all benefit from this title.

Book Description :

This book gives researchers and students a user-friendly, step-by-step guide to planning qualitative research. Based on a course that the author taught for 7 years at the Harvard Graduate School of Education, it is written in an informal, jargon-free style and incorporates many examples and hands-on exercises. Rather than the rigid, linear approach to design that is usually found in research methods textbooks--and which is particularly ill suited for qualitative research--this book presents a flexible, systemic model of design. This model not only better fits what experienced qualitative researchers actually do, but provides a clear framework for designing a study and developing a research proposal. This edition includes new or substantially expanded discussions of research paradigms, defining a research problem, site and participant selection, relationships with research participants, data analysis, and validity, as well as more examples and exercises.

Book Description :

The issues of soundness of qualitative research are examined in this book. Contributors discuss how a researcher does qualitative research, considering such questions as: whether one deviates from the developer's protocol and what the ramifications are of such deviation, how students learn to acquire the conceptual skills necessary to conduct qualitative inquiry, and how theory "emerges" from the data. The book discusses group effect in focus groups and describes an observational method using videotaped data. The various schools of phenomenology and their major characteristics of excellence are explained, and the Glasserian and Straussian methods of grounded theory are compared. Issues of ethics and scientific integrity are also raised. Each chapter, dealing with a matter that has not yet been resolved or addressed in the literature, is preceded by a dialogue in which contributors raise questions and comment upon the concept presented.

He provides practical advice on key issues, such as: defining `originality' and narrowing down a topic; keeping a research diary and writing a research report; and presenting research to different audiences. Features of Doing Qualitative Research: Second Edition include: - six new chapters - case studies of students' own experiential accounts of doing research - essential guidance on practical issues such as working with your supervisor or writing up your research - end-of-chapter 'researcher's checklists' - a range of examples from across the full range of social science disciplines, including sociology, education, health studies and business studies - the latest discussions of CAQDAS and E-research - an all new and extended methods glossary Doing Qualitative Research: Second Edition retains Silverman's uniquely accessible, hands-on style, walking the student through every aspect of the process of actually doing a qualitative research project. Packed with case studies and examples of students' experiences, the book has many features to aid study, including overviews, summaries of key skills and a glossary of terms. Each stage in the research process is grounded in worked examples based on the experiences of real students, with exercises designed both to test readers' knowledge and to encourage the development of practical skills.

Unique in the market, this book describes the entire research process — from design through writing — illustrated by examples of real, complete qualitative work that clearly demonstrates how methods are used in actual practice.

The studies profiled are accompanied by observation field notes, and the text includes additional readings for both students and instructors. More than just theory, this guide is designed to give you a real-world practitioner's view of how qualitative research is handled every step of the way.

This book shows you how to effectively handle qualitative work, regardless of where it's being applied. Understand the strengths and limitations of qualitative data Learn how experts work around common methodological issues Compare actual field notes to the qualitative studies they generated Examine the full range of qualitative methods throughout the research process Whether you're studying sociology, psychology, marketing, or any number of other fields, especially in the social and behavioral sciences, human behavior is the central concern of your work. So what drives human behavior? That's what qualitative research helps to explain. Introduction to Qualitative Research Methods gives you the foundation you need to begin seeking answers.

Book Description :

Qualitative research is employed more and more often by business researchers and practitioners alike. Part of its success is due to the fact that qualitative research seems to demand less effort and skill than quantitative research. However, because of the multitude of possibilities and choices that need to be made, performing a qualitative research project is not, as at first glance it seems to be, an easy endeavor. This custom book intends to provide participants in the Qualitative Research Methods course with the basic “handles” to steer their first qualitative research project journey. The road to success in this project is made up by a trajectory of methodological procedures: choosing the appropriate qualitative research techniques; performing a systematic collection and analysis of qualitative data; and a constant comparison of and critical reflection on the findings.
