“Because of its clarity, reliability and readability, Completing Your Qualitative Dissertation is the ultimate "DIY guide" for each and every chapter of the dissertation. This book will empower students as they work to prepare for conversations with advisors and committee members, through the various milestones en route to transcript approval. I strongly suggest that anyone embarking on the qualitative process procure a copy, as it has no equal on the market today.”

This book fills a gap in the qualitative research literature by addressing one of the key challenges facing doctoral students: writing a dissertation. Authors Linda Dale Bloomberg and Marie Volpe distill years of experience into a first-of-its-kind, highly practical resource for graduate students. Blending the conceptual, theoretical, and practical, the book becomes a dissertation in action—a logical and cohesive explanation and illustration of content and process. This Second Edition offers doctoral students comprehensive guidance and accessible, practical tools for navigating each step of the qualitative dissertation journey. While key features that distinguish the book’s unique approach are maintained, this edition responds to recent developments in the field.
