The third edition of this best-selling text guides students and researchers through the process of doing qualitative research, clearly explaining how different theoretical approaches inform what you do in practice. The text bridges the gap between `cookbook' and more abstract approaches to qualitative research, by posing `difficult questions' that researchers should be asking themselves . The book invites researchers to engage in a creative and critical practice in how they draw insights, interpret a range of types of data and craft knowledge from qualitative research.
Fully revised and updated, with three new chapters, this edition:
* Covers the full research process, with new material on analysing and interpreting data and research ethics
* Engages with exciting new developments in the field through challenging qualitative researchers to be creative with how they research and with what they find.
* Examines the potential of qualitatively-led approaches to mixed methods, and their implications for research design, research practice and the production of convincing arguments.
A theoretically engaged, grounded approach to qualitative researching, this remains the ideal text to guide students to become thoughtful, creative and effective qualitative researchers.
