Exploratory Research in the Social Sciences


Volume: 48

July 2001 | 80 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
Guided by the precept that to understand any phenomenon well, it is necessary to start by looking at it in broad, nonspecialized terms, Robert A Stebbins takes the reader through the process of exploratory research in an easy-to-read style providing the student or researcher with a complete reference for carrying out this type of research.

Exploration
Its Future in the Information Age

 

An insightful approach to research as an exploration rather than a set of rules and strategies. A book would be valuable for anyone who is up taking qualitative research that is dealing with people's stories
