The Third Edition of the bestselling Basics of Qualitative Research:Techniques and Procedures for Developing Grounded Theory continues to offer immensely practical advice and technical expertise to aid researchers in making sense of their collected data. Authors Juliet Corbin and the late Anselm Strauss (co-creator of Grounded Theory) present methods that enable researchers to analyze and interpret their data, and ultimately build theory from it. Highly accessible in their approach, Corbin and Strauss provide a step-by-step guide to the research act--from the formation of the research question through several approaches to coding and analysis, to reporting on the research. Full of definitions and illustrative examples, this book concludes with chapters that present criteria for evaluating a study, as well as responses to common questions posed by students of qualitative research. Significantly revised, Basics of Qualitative Research remains a landmark volume in the study of qualitative methods.

Key Features of the Third Edition:

  • Allows for students to develop their critical thinking skills in the "Critical Issues" section at the end of each chapter.

  • Shows the actual steps involved in data analysis (from description to grounded theory) and data gathering by means of theoretical sampling.

  • Provides exercises for thinking, writing and group discussion that reinforces material presented in the text.

Review:

"With its storytelling and conversational approach, what might be dry becomes a stimulating and engaging read — even for the experienced researcher. This edition has been enriched in multiple ways. This classic introduction to qualitative method and practice is a pleasurable and rewarding read for the novice and experienced researcher alike." (Anne Cooper Moore 2009-11-17)
