Contributor(s): Bryman, Alan [Editor].
Series: Sage Benchmarks in Social Research Methods. Publisher: London Sage Publications 2007Description: xlv, 394 p.ISBN: 9781412911641.Subject(s): Social science - ResearchDDC classification: R 001.42 Summary: Qualitative research is a burgeoning field which has attracted a growing amount of self-reflection. Reflecting the growth of interest among qualitative researchers in the nature of their craft, this collection extends the value of the critically acclaimed First Edition of Qualitative Research, edited by Alan Bryman and Robert G. Burgess by emphasizing key issues that demand the attention of qualitative researchers. It explores with topics that have come increasingly to the fore in the years since the publication Qualitative Research in 1999. Thus, topics such as visual research, biographical method, narrative analysis, computer-assisted qualitative data analysis, and reflexivity that have become more prominent over the last five years are given the greater attention they increasingly warrant. Volume I covers issues to do with the collection of data, including sampling. While covering traditional topics, such as ethnography and qualitative interviewing, it will reflect the greater diversity of approaches to data collection that has arisen since the last set, such as visual ethnography, qualitative evaluation, biographical approaches, and new developments in qualitative interviewing. Volume II addresses matters concerned with quality criteria in relation to qualitative research. Volume III deals with issues of representation and generalization and as such covers topics to do with the issue of realism and how and whether it is possible to provide a definitive representation of social reality. Volume IV contains selections relating qualitative data analysis. It includes discussions of the main approaches to qualitative data analysis (including discourse analysis and conversation analysis) and reflects the growing interest in and importance attached to computer-assisted qualitative data analysis.
