The Researcher Experience in Qualitative Research

The Researcher Experience in Qualitative Research

October 1999 | 199 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc

One of the most prominent currents felt in the arena of qualitative research methods is the impulse toward reflexivity and self-analysis: researchers considering their own place in the research act. The goals of this book are to describe various researcher experiences and give novice researchers some insight to better choose research settings, deal with their own personal issues in the research act, and to report their research accurately.

The first part of the book will consider various populations and settings for qualitative research with a special emphasis on health care-related settings. Part Two will discuss how one processes the researcher experience - both in terms of tools that can be used (networking, focused discussions, qualitative writing, etc.) as well as issues pertaining to processing (cross-cultural and gender issues, etc.) It then offers some insight into ways of processing the researcher experience in teams.

Finally, in part three, the author turn to ways of reporting the researcher experience, both in terms of possible setting (journal articles, chapters, the Internet) as well as modes and issues (first-person narratives, ethical considerations).
