Doing Qualitative Research

Third Edition


August 2022 | 456 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
Are you looking to improve your qualitative research skills?

Look no further than the Third Edition of Doing Qualitative Research by Benjamin F. Crabtree and William L. Miller! This reader-friendly text provides a comprehensive overview of qualitative methods, design, and analysis, making it perfect for both students and researchers with little to no prior experience.

Chapters
The book's first four chapters contextualize qualitative research within the broader research landscape, covering
  • the history of the field,
  • the importance of collaboration and reflexivity, and
  • strategies for selecting the right methodology for your research question.
Later (unique) chapters focus on specific stages of the research process, including
  • data collection,
  • analysis,
  • interpretation,
  • case study research,
  • intervention studies, and
  • participatory research.

Examples Help Readers Understand How Concepts Work in Practice
Throughout the book, Crabtree and Miller draw on their own experiences and expertise to illustrate key concepts and provide practical guidance. The authors also highlight numerous clinical research examples that demonstrate the use of qualitative methods within a mixed-methods approach. Each chapter concludes with open-ended questions to encourage further reflection and discussion.

Whether you're new to qualitative research or looking to refine your skills, Doing Qualitative Research is an invaluable resource. Start learning by doing and experiment with the tools and concepts presented in the book!
