Emerging forms of representing qualitative data
Emerging forms of representing qualitative data by Carlene Boucher and Rosalie Holian
Emerging forms of representing qualitative data is the third title in the Qualitative Research Methods series.
- offers examples of some of the ways that researchers in the business disciplines can begin to use data collection and representation approaches that are more commonly found in other disciplines such as sociology, ethnography and the fine arts
- offers the beginnings of the development of data collection and representation approaches that will challenge and perhaps redefine what constitutes knowledge in the business disciplines
- traces the evolution of ways of representing qualitative data and articulates some of the reasons for the emerging challenges to traditional approaches
- provides examples of alternative approaches to representation using various types of text and form, including comments from the authors on why they chose their approach and what they see as its strengths and weaknesses
- debates some of the issues these emerging approaches raise, such as how is qualitative research to be judged, what is rigour and who is an author?
The Qualitative Research Methods series is intended primarily to assist postgraduate research students in understanding the different qualitative research methods and to enable students to choose the most appropriate method for their particular research. Each monograph will also provide guidance on conducting research throughout candidature. These monographs will also be a valuable aid and support to supervisors using qualitative research.
