Overview

What do I do after the data analysis is done? This is one of the questions that plague most writers doing qualitative research and it is one of the key questions that inform this book.

With a contributor panel of 22 renowned and frequently published qualitative research authors, Janice Morse explores a wide range of topics, from nuts and bolts to the angst of the publishing process, and from the methodological to application. These discussions make this book a perfect companion to the author's early volumes, Qualitative Nursing Research and Critical Issues in Qualitative Research. Moreover, since the development of the book provided for input from the contributors on each others' chapters, each article is followed by a dial

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Suzanne K. Beltz
This valuable resource speaks to the lack of dialog regarding the evaluation of outcomes of qualitative research, the sharing of these outcomes, and the implementation of changes in practice based on outcomes of an informant based study. The purpose is to address issues in qualitative research that occur after data analysis. The editor presents the work for discussion and to provide guidelines for the evaluation and dissemination of outcomes, so that the ""power and usefulness of qualitative research will be recognized."" The editor indicates that her target audience is ""The world. At large."" Written by a group of 22 contributing nurse scholars, this book will be a valuable resource for nurse scientists, as well as researchers and graduate students of any discipline who are interested in qualitative research and the outcomes of such research. This writing is well organized. More than half of the chapters contain good use of tables and diagrams to enhance understanding of the material. Reference lists at the end of each chapter include both the classic writings and most current articles found on the specific topic. The book contains both a detailed subject index and a name index. A special feature of this work is found in the combination of individual writing and collaborative efforts of the contributing authors. This book is a well balanced presentation of discussion and details for disseminating the findings of a qualitative research project. The contributors have given guiding perspective to issues of importance in the research community, e.g. the strength, credibility, and generalizability of a qualitative research project. The information will both challenge and stimulate thereader's thinking.

Description: This valuable resource speaks to the lack of dialog regarding the evaluation of outcomes of qualitative research, the sharing of these outcomes, and the implementation of changes in practice based on outcomes of an informant based study.
Purpose: The purpose is to address issues in qualitative research that occur after data analysis. The editor presents the work for discussion and to provide guidelines for the evaluation and dissemination of outcomes, so that the "power and usefulness of qualitative research will be recognized."
Audience: The editor indicates that her target audience is "The world. At large." Written by a group of 22 contributing nurse scholars, this book will be a valuable resource for nurse scientists, as well as researchers and graduate students of any discipline who are interested in qualitative research and the outcomes of such research.
Features: This writing is well organized. More than half of the chapters contain good use of tables and diagrams to enhance understanding of the material. Reference lists at the end of each chapter include both the classic writings and most current articles found on the specific topic. The book contains both a detailed subject index and a name index. A special feature of this work is found in the combination of individual writing and collaborative efforts of the contributing authors.
Assessment: This book is a well balanced presentation of discussion and details for disseminating the findings of a qualitative research project.
