“Dr. Derrington covers an area that's often hard to cover, and she does it succinctly and clearly and rigorously. That's what we need in qualitative research endeavors. Instead of spending time apologizing that our methods are not quantitative, spend more time explaining what is we do as qualitative researchers. Derrington communicates it well!”
