Qualitative Research 2

Four Volume Set
Edited by:


September 2007 | 1 720 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd
Qualitative research is a burgeoning field which has attracted a growing amount of self-reflection. Reflecting the growth of interest among qualitative researchers in the nature of their craft, this collection extends the value of the critically acclaimed first edition of Qualitative Research, edited by Alan Bryman and Robert G. Burgess by emphasizing key issues that demand the attention of qualitative researchers.

It explores with topics that have come increasingly to the fore in the years since the publication Qualitative Research in 1999. Thus, topics such as visual research, biographical method, narrative analysis, computer-assisted qualitative data analysis, and reflexivity that have become more prominent over the last five years will be given the greater attention they increasingly warrant.

Volume I will cover issues to do with the collection of data, including sampling. While covering traditional topics, such as ethnography and qualitative interviewing, it will reflect the greater diversity of approaches to data collection that has arisen since the last set, such as visual ethnography, qualitative evaluation, biographical approaches, and new developments in qualitative interviewing.

Volume II will address matters concerned with quality criteria in relation to qualitative research.

Volume III deals with issues of representation and generalization and as such will cover topics to do with the issue of realism and how and whether it is possible to provide a definitive representation of social reality.

Volume IV contains selections relating qualitative data analysis. It will include discussions of the main approaches to qualitative data analysis (including discourse analysis and conversation analysis) and will reflect the growing interest in and importance attached to computer-assisted qualitative data analysis
