On Writing Qualitative Research: Living by Words
Written for both beginning and experienced researchers, this book is about creating research writhing that is useful, believable, and interesting. The authors recognise that qualitative reports are inevitably ways of telling stories. Blending rigorous scholarship with a clear, accessible style, they examine the processes, rhetorical devices, and other tools researchers use to craft stories that evoke complexity of the experiences within their studies. Throughout the book the authors' accounts of their own research writing experiences and those of their colleagues are woven together with the writing and reflections-on-writing of students of qualitative research. The result is a framework of insights that challenges, models, questions, and illustrates the ways in which researchers compose meaning from their research data and present them in meaningful ways for others.
