Basics of qualitative research: grounded theory procedures and techniques
There comes a time in all research when collected data must be analysed and interpreted. This volume presents practical procedures and techniques for doing grounded theory studies at a level accessible to students and researchers in applied disciplines. It provides a step by step approach to doing research from formulation of the initial research question, through various systems of coding and analysis, to the process of writing or speaking on the research topic. It will be an invaluable tool for the novice researcher and a useful text for courses in qualitative research in social science programmes.
