Qualitative Research in Action: A Canadian Primer, 4th edition
Now in its fourth edition, Qualitative Research in Action continues to offer students a concise, clear introduction to the diverse world of qualitative research. Throughout this compelling work, Deborah K. van den Hoonaard and new co-author Lisa-Jo ven den Scott bring the research process to life by exploring a wide array of examples drawn from actual studies, including their own research experiences. Emphasizing communication, connection, and flexibility as the cornerstones of qualitative research, this new edition offers beginner students the foundation they need to conduct their first qualitative studies. This fourth edition of Qualitative Research in Action sees the addition and emphasis of Indigenous content and methodologies, including new examples of working with Indigenous communities, along with new and expanded discussions on auto-ethnography, unobtrusive research, oral history, and talking circles.
The Craft of Qualitative Research.
An edited collection packed with advice, exercises, and anecdotes, The Craft of Qualitative Research is a practical, introductory guide that will develop students’ skills and confidence in qualitative research. Accessible in style and tone, this text equips students with the tools needed to manage and overcome challenges, emotions, biases, and power dynamics in the field. To encourage experiential learning, 45 concise chapters include real-world examples and practical exercises from scholars and professionals in varying disciplines and stages of career. Each section begins with an editors’ introduction then takes readers through the steps of successful qualitative research: from planning projects ethically and entering the field, to collecting and analyzing data, and lastly, to exiting the field and disseminating findings. Students in research-reliant disciplines, particularly sociology, anthropology, criminology, social work, and health studies, will benefit from this distinctly practical resource.
