Overview

This authoritative collection provides a practical and comprehensive introduction to team-based qualitative research. The authors are social scientists and health researchers with extensive experience in this rapidly expanding field. Qualitative research has become increasingly interdisciplinary and team oriented. The transition away from the lone-researcher approach to collaborative and inter-institutional research creates new challenges for designing and implementing qualitative research. The authors use examples from both American and international studies to show how working in teams affects research design, project management, data analysis, and the presentation of research findings. The book offers numerous approaches and methods for making team research more efficient and enhancing the quality of research findings throughout all stages of the research process. Topics covered include: project design and preparation; logistics; research ethics; political dimensions of collaborative research; data collection; transcription and data management; codebook development; data reduction and analysis; monitoring and quality control; and dissemination of results.
