Meta-study is an exciting new opportunity for the analysis and synthesis of qualitative research findings. Over the last two decades, a wide range of methods and approaches originating from the social and health sciences have provided a wealth of new knowledge sources from which to develop theory.

This book provides step-by-step directions for how to conduct a meta-study, as well as recommendations for tools and standards for the application of this approach.

Meta-study entails an exhaustive analysis of the theory, method, and findings of research in a substantive area. These analytic processes form the foundation upon which a credible synthesis of new knowledge can be explored. Meta-study permits investigators to:

{ look beyond individual findings

{ critically interpret variations and contradictions in the body of available research

{ move toward the potential for knowledge synthesis

The authors of this timely volume:

{ differentiate between meta-analysis and meta-synthesis

{ write in a how-to style

{ illustrate each step with examples from their own meta-study projects in the substantive field of chronic illness

{ use their own experience with performing a meta-study to explain the process, including past mistakes and retrospective insight
