- Now expanded, Chapter 5 takes an extensive look at manuscripts prior to publication.
- The text offers useful strategies for addressing the writing issues that researchers face when shepherding a manuscript from invention to publication.
- The book includes real-world examples drawn from many disciplines and publications to demonstrate styles, concepts, challenges, and potential outcomes from writing qualitative research.
- The work features an expanded list of additional reference materials (online guides included).
The book has interesting ideas about how to write down the reports generated from qualitative research but I will not adopt this for my method course since I need to have a book that explains first the main research methods.
The book is very suitable for doctoral students and other academics. Parts of it can be potentially useful for students writing their Master thesis using qualitative research methods.
Useful reference on how to actually write up the results of qualitative research
A fantastic resource for doctoral students and academics alike. Highly informative and very readable.
Some valuable advice and examples for students considering a qualitative research project
Although aimed primarily at the process of writing for journal articles, the content is transferable to the process of writing a doctoral thesis. Chapter Two and the discussion on identifying a gap in the present literature is particularly useful.
Excellent book for advanced doc students
