Summary
Like the bestselling first edition of Qualitative Inquiry and Research Design: Choosing Among Five Traditions, this new version of the text explores the philosophical underpinnings, history, and key elements of each of five qualitative inquiry traditions: narrative research, phenomenology, grounded theory, ethnography, and case study. In this text, John W. Creswell, who is known for his accessible writing style, relates research designs to each of the traditions of inquiry. As Creswell does this, he 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 this 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 Additional examples from the field of Social Work
