Editat de Jane Ritchie, Jane Lewis, Carol McNaughton Nicholls, Rachel Ormston
en Limba Engleză Electronic book text – 19 Nov 2013
Why use qualitative methods? What kinds of questions can qualitative methods help you answer? How do you actually do rigorous and reflective qualitative research in the real world?  

Written by a team of leading researchers associated with NatCen Social Research (the National Centre for Social Research) this textbook leads students and researchers through the entire process of qualitative research from beginning to end - moving through design, sampling, data collection, analysis and reporting.   In this fully revised second edition you will find:
  • A practical account of how to carry out qualitative research which recognises a range of current approaches and applications
  • A brand new chapter on ethics
  • A brand new chapter on observational research
  • Updated advice on using software when analysing your qualitative data
  • New case studies which illustrate issues you may encounter and how problems have been tackled by other researchers.  
This book is an ideal guide for students, practitioners and researchers faced with the challenges of doing qualitative research in both applied and academic settings in messy real-life contexts.

Full of useful and informative chapters that take the students through the key stages within qualitative research.
I think this is an excellent book - whenever students ask for advice on DOING qualitative research (rather than writing essays on it), I reach for this.
An excellent primer for anyone who is new to qualitative research, and also a very useful reference book for people with more experience.
