Qualitative Inquiry and Research Design - International Student Edition
Choosing Among Five Approaches

Fifth Edition

January 2024 | SAGE Publications, Inc
In the Fifth Edition of the bestselling text Qualitative Inquiry and Research Design: Choosing Among Five Approaches, John W. Creswell and Cheryl N. Poth guide researchers in selecting the best option for their studies by exploring, evaluating, and applying five qualitative research approaches: narrative research, phenomenology, grounded theory, ethnography, and case study. For each of these qualitative inquiry traditions, the authors explore the philosophical underpinnings, history, defining features, common data procedures, and writing structures. With expanded content reflecting technological developments in the qualitative research process, more inclusivity and diversity in examples, and updated references, the Fifth Edition is an ideal introduction to the theories, strategies, and practices of qualitative research.
