"It is both usefully expanded and very reader friendly. The book has a distinctive helpful tone and an almost "how to do it" style. If one liked the first edition, then he or she will probably adore this one." (Organizational Research Methods)
"The success of mixed methods is particularly noticeable in medical and health-related research: in order to secure funding, it is advisable to incorporate a quantitative element into any such research project, and from the point of view of working with human subjects, most qualitative researchers would argue that a qualitative element is required." —Alison Scott-Baumann, University of Gloucestershire (Alison Scott-Baumann 2008-02-08)
`It is a book that will stimulate the graduate student and provide a rich source of material for any teacher of research design' -
Qualitative Research Journal
The book that has helped more than 80,000 students and researchers prepare their plan or proposal for a scholarly journal article, dissertation or thesis has been revised and updated while maintaining all the features that made the First Edition so popular.
New in the Second Edition: every chapter now shows how to implement a mixed method design as well as how to tackle quantitative and qualitative approaches; ethical issues have been added to a new section in Chapter 3; writing tips and considerations have been expanded and moved to the first part of the book to ensure research plans and proposals start in the right direction; and, the latest developments in qualitative inquiry (advocacy, participatory and emancipatory approaches) have been added to Chapter 10.
Writing exercises conclude each chapter so that readers can practice the principles learned in the chapter, and, if all the exercises are completed have a written plan for their study. In addition, numbered points provide a handy checklist for each step in a process and annotated passages help the reader's comprehension of key research ideas.
