Details and Dialogue

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 new work by Janice Morse, Director of the International Institute of Qualitative Methodology at the University of Alberta. Together with a contributor panel of 22 renowned and frequently-published qualitative research authors, Dr. Morse explores a wide range of topics, from the nuts and bolts (protecting participantsÆ confidentiality, finishing a project, developing the writing topic, finding other approaches), to the angst of the publishing process (critiquing qualitative research dealing with refection, responding to criticism), and from the methodological (linking qualitative and quantitative research, and performing participatory action research and qualitative meta-analysis) to application (generalizability in qualitative research, the politicking of research results, qualitative research in policy development). These discussions make Completing a Qualitative Project a perfect companion volume for Dr. MorseÆs early volumes, Qualitative Nursing Research and Critical Issues in Qualitative Research. WhatÆs more, since the development of the book provided for input from the contributors on the othersÆ chapters, each article combines the wisdom of the entire contributor panel and is followed by a dialogue on a related topic. These dialogues resulted from intense brainstorming sessions among the contributors. In perusing the book readers will be comforted to learn that they are not alone in their qualitative writing endeavors. Completing a Qualitative Project is intended to inform, support, cajole, and inspireùaltogether and enlightening read!
