Integrating Quantitative and Qualitative Methods in Research systematically outlines specific strategies to guide the student in designing and conducting empirical research. As with any undertaking that is based on skill development, the more you use the skill the more adept you become with the skill. The quality and usefulness of all research is only as good as the skills of the researcher and the clarity of the research study. This book is written primarily for graduate level producers of education and social science research. It is also appropriate for students who are proposing and conducting a research project as a culminating undergraduate requirement, and individuals and groups conducting research on topics independent of an informed means of assuming the role of researcher and embarking on a research study. It is written with the encouragement of learners who participated or will participate in research.

MEDIA REVIEWS
The book is a practical resource for education and social science researchers who can be tentative about how to begin their research projects and find the detailed research books overwhelming, initially. Central to the book is a process, to guide beginner researchers in conceptualizing and framing a research project. The process, information, examples, and exercises were field tested with over 100 doctoral students in dissertation proposal development courses. The contents have proven successful in meeting beginners' initial needs. -- Cynthia L. Jackson, Ph.D, dean of education, University of Virgin Islands
Written in non-technical language, readers are guided incrementally through the complexities of focusing a research study, and how to address the initial problems they can encounter when embarking on the research journey. Part I provides preliminary considerations about research and being a researcher. Part II describes ways of thinking about conceptualizing and framing a research study. Part III contains a comparative overview of the quantitative and qualitative research approaches, and highlights some of the research methods associated with each. Part IV assists researchers in becoming familiar with data sources for research, contents of a research proposal and a research report, and answers procedural questions that are frequently asked. -- Theresa L. Harris, Ph.D., Coppin State University
