Description

Qualitative Research Methods, fifth edition, is one of the few texts on qualitative research methods written and published in Australia. This multidisciplinary text is written simply and provides an accessible and practical guide to conducting and analysing qualitative data effectively for undergraduate and postgraduate students entering people-facing professions. It agrees with the ideology that in order to understand people’s behaviour, we must first attempt to understand the meanings and interpretations that people give to that behaviour.


The content and pedagogical approach introduces students to an updated overview of the research process and helps them navigate through the practical ways of carrying out qualitative research methods: from writing a qualitative research proposal to the application of qualitative enquiry across different groups of individuals. Qualitative Research Methods continues to be an easy to read, solid foundation for students in a variety of disciplines and ensures they are well prepared to conduct qualitative research across real-world projects.
