Product Description

The bestselling guide to qualitative research, updated and expanded

Qualitative Research is the essential guide to understanding, designing, conducting, and presenting a qualitative research study. This fourth edition features new material covering mixed methods, action research, arts-based research, online data sources, and the latest in data analysis, including data analysis software packages as well as narrative and poetic analysis strategies. A new section offers multiple ways of presenting qualitative research findings. The reader-friendly, jargon-free style makes this book accessible to both novice and experienced researchers, emphasizing the role of a theoretical framework in designing a study while providing practical guidance.

Qualitative research reaches beyond the what, where, and when of quantitative analysis to investigate the why and how behind human behavior and the reasons that govern such behavior, but this presents a number of significant challenges. This guide is an invaluable reference for students and practitioners alike, providing the deep understanding that this sometimes difficult area of research requires to produce accurate results. The book contains a step-by-step guide to analyzing qualitative data and an addendum for graduate students with a template for a thesis, dissertation, or grant application.

  • Build a strong foundation in qualitative research theory and application
  • Design and implement effective qualitative research studies
  • Communicate findings more successfully with clear presentation
  • Explore data sources, data analysis tools, and the different types of research

As a doctoral research student pursuing a qualitative research methodology, neither the phenomenological nor narrative designs fit my research question. Instead, Merriam & Tisdale (2016) share that this happens frequently and there''s a sixth qualitative design that covers this gap, the Basic Qualitative Research Design. If you are already familiar with the other five designs, this book is a great supporting reference to further explore, compare, and contrast those designs. Good luck!

Excellent text for those new to qualitative research
Reviewed in the United States on July 18, 2018
An excellent introductory, accessible text without too many technical jargons. Those who are new to qualitative research will appreciate this well-written and popular text. More advanced researchers may still want to retain a copy as a reference.

When I needed information from the book several months after I ordered it, I opened the book and discovered there was a printing issue. The first half of the book includes pages from 1-154, then repeats those same pages for the second half of the book. Unfortunately, the information I need to cite for a scholarly paper is in the second half of the book which is missing. Unfortunately, the return window is now closed.
