What do I do after the data analysis is done? This is one of the questions that plague most writers doing qualitative research and it is one of the key questions that inform this book.

With a contributor panel of 22 renowned and frequently published qualitative research authors, Janice Morse explores a wide range of topics, from nuts and bolts to the angst of the publishing process, and from the methodological to application. These discussions make this book a perfect companion to the author's early volumes, Qualitative Nursing Research and Critical Issues in Qualitative Research. Moreover, since the development of the book provided for input from the contributors on each others' chapters, each article is followed by a dialogue resulting from intense brainstorming sessions among the contributors. Readers will be comforted to learn that they are not alone in their qualitative writing endeavours. Completing a Qualitative Project will inform, support, cajole and inspire.
