This introductory textbook presents a useful framework of three interconnected cycles – the design cycle, the data collection cycle and the analytic cycle – to guide students through the process of conducting qualitative research. Engaging examples illustrate each step from start to completion.
Hennink, Hutter and Bailey provide a highly practical overview of all stages in the qualitative research process, linking clearly the cycles of design, data collection and data analysis. Excellent case studies illustrate qualitative research in practice. The authors’ clarity and coherence throughout the text makes this book a valuable read for all qualitative researchers.
Written from a situated epistemological perspective, this handbook nicely blends theory with method and method with practical examples. A valuable guide for early career researchers in need of clear and simple answers to deal with complex phenomena and common critiques.
I have used it as the main textbook which offers an outstanding understanding of qualitative research with easy to follow and ample examples from the field.
This is essential for degree students who are focusing on a qualitative research project.
Excellent guide for students choosing to undertake qualitative research.
a useful and contemporary guide to qualitative research that will be appropriate to both undergraduate and postgraduate students.
It is always good to get an update to a book and this update is welcome ten years after the first edition.
I like to direct student to books that are readable and add value to their own learning, irrespective of their learning style. I think this book will appeal to a wide audience.
For me, take the time to also access the online resources, do not just use the book. Start at the glossary flash cards, a good place to help with some tricky terminology for people new to research.
Use book and online resources to get the most out of this publication
This is a very good resource
Good information in the book
Great book for a beginners course (bachelor students).
Whilst I looked at this for UG students my PGR students have found this really helpful, particularly if been a while since in study.
This book presents really clear and useful information about qualitative research methods and methodologies in a contemporary world. The contents are nicely laid out and the discussions throughout are clear and thorough. I will highly recommend this book to students, academics and professionals. A must have book in qualitative research.
This text represents a current perspective on qualitative research methods to complement classic and seminal texts. A very useful text at L6 and L7, thank you.
This is well-written and easily accessible book, which will be of great benefit to my doctoral students as consider how to approach their projects. The information included is both practical as well as thought-provoking, and the inclusion of case studies, exercises and relevant reference lists, will be of great help in developing the students' skills and understanding of how to get the best out of their research.
