Twentieth Century Russian Poetry Summary

Twentieth Century Russian Poetry by Volume editor Max Hayward

This new edition of Lyn Richards' best-selling book provides an accessible introduction to qualitative research for students and practitioners. Recognizing that for many new researchers dealing with data is the main point of departure, this book helps them to acquire a progressive understanding of the skills and methodological issues that are central to qualitative research. Lyn Richards provides clear and pragmatic guidance on how to handle, reflect on and get results from small amounts of data, while at the same time showing how a consideration of methods and their philosophical underpinnings informs how we should best handle our data. This book also covers all the processes of making, meeting, sorting, coding, documenting, and exploring qualitative data, smoothly integrating software use and the discussion of the main challenges that readers are likely to encounter. It guides novice researchers to achieve valid and useful outcomes from qualitative analysis, and to ensure they do justice to their data. This second edition features: increased coverage of issues about the researcher's relation to their data and ethical implications; and an expanded section on preparing for data collection and reflecting on the nature of data. There is also a brand new website, offering: live, detailed case studies of qualitative methods in practice, linking to publications and illustrative material. Researchers tell the stories of projects, from design, through what was actually done with the data, to how analysis was achieved and reported; a software guide with links to information and tutorials in several products.

About Volume editor Max Hayward

Lyn Richards is a sociologist and qualitative researcher who pioneered qualitative software and services for qualitative researchers and now is an independent teacher, writer and consultant. Her academic qualifications are from the universities of Adelaide (Politics B.A.) and La Trobe (Sociology M.A.) where as Reader in Sociology she taught qualitative methods at undergraduate and graduate levels. Her research was in migrant studies and family, health and women's studies. Those projects led to experiments in handling of qualitative data with computers, and with Tom Richards she designed the pioneering NUDIST software (for Nonnumerical Unstructured Data, Indexing, Searching and Theorizing). The next ten years of their professional lives were in QSR International, the company they founded to develop and support the use of NUD*IST and later NVivo. As Director of Research Services Lyn taught and consulted in projects in 13 countries, teaching thousands of researchers, writing methods texts and software documentation, personally training most of the 70 trainers worldwide who supported the software and many of the professors who used it in class. Her tenth book, (if you count books on software) was Handling Qualitative Data: a Practical Guide (Sage, London), telling of much she learned over these years of helping researchers who often had no academic training but wished to do justice to their data, across countries, disciplines and contexts. Like her earlier book with Janice Morse, Readme First, it has been widely used in academic and 'outside' research worlds, and both books have been translated to Japanese.
