Editorial Reviews

Susan M. Chappell
In this book, the author coaches the reader through the elements of qualitative research proposal development and qualitative research reporting. This second edition differs from the first edition in that suggestions from researchers and students to clarify ambiguity in the guidelines are incorporated, and the author provides additional examples. This guide is intended to suggest a format that is appropriate for qualitative research designs in their broad sense. Students, faculty, and researchers are the intended audience. Clear and concise guidelines for addressing content to be included in a qualitative research proposal are presented. Next, directions for adding breadth, depth, and specifics to the proposal are suggested to produce the qualitative research report, which is written after the research is completed. Guidelines for what elements to include in the abstract are provided. Lastly, the table of contents from three examples of dissertation proposals and reports are presented. Novice and experienced researchers are sometimes expected to write qualitative research proposals or reports based on a format that is not necessarily appropriate. This is similar to trying to place a square peg in a round hole. The end result is that the square peg does not fit. The author offers a useful guide to the elements that are necessary in a qualitative proposal and report, thus producing a fit that is appropriate to qualitative research designs.
