Qualitative Data Analysis | Qualitative Research
Introducing eight analytical approaches that are key to successful social science research, this book helps you get to grips with theory and apply it to qualitative analysis.
With two ‘matched chapters’ dedicated to each approach, it provides a balance between theory and analytical method. The first chapter grounds the approach in theory and the second uses real-world examples to show how to conduct your own analysis using the approach.
Drawing on the contributing authors’ wealth of experience, the book:
· Highlights how analysis relates to the entire research process and helps you position your analysis within the larger context of your research
· Provides a strong, theoretical foundation for building good qualitative analysis
· Guides you through translating theory into real-world practice in your own research
Detailed, clear and accessible, this book is perfect for students who want to understand the theory behind qualitative analysis before conducting their own research, or develop their understanding of specific approaches.
An excellent introduction to qualitative research approaches which will be invaluable for Education researchers and students.
This book is the most comprehensive overview of approaches to analysis in qualitative research that I have seen. It is easy to read and would be well suited for undergraduates or any professionals who wish to use qualitative methods.
A rich book that makes you really think about the crucial questions of doing qualitative research. Finally a book that enlightens the black box of qualitative research.
This volume emphasizes methodology as an analytical approach. In so doing it seeks to bridge the methods/theory divide by providing sound guidelines for conducting research. This is a welcome and much-needed resource for advanced social sciences students and the experienced researcher.
This book is essential reading for social science students and researchers seeking to understand the nuances of different approaches to qualitative research design and analysis. It’s unique merging of theory and practice in relation to eight key approaches sets it apart from other volumes.
I never ordered this book for review? Nor did I receive it.
It helps in a small part of the Course
an interesting collection of approaches which will appeal to students considering qualitative methods.
This is an excellent resource for students
It is a very interesting book with a very good idea behind but for my purpusoes it is not so suitable because out of the eight approaches my students will only use 1, 2 or max three. I will use it in a course but I would not recommend it my students because tehre are some more suitable books eg. King et al or Padgett by Sage.
