Completing Your Qualitative Dissertation fills an important gap in qualitative research literature by specifically addressing the fast-growing practice of qualitative master's studies and doctoral dissertations in colleges and universities throughout the world. Many students struggle with turning qualitative research projects into a master's thesis or doctoral dissertation because the research itself is inherently messy. To address this challenge, authors Linda Dale Bloomberg and Marie Volpe have distilled decades of experience into a first-of-its-kind, highly practical reference for graduate students. Offers roadmaps in the form of tables, figures, and matrices. These are intended as working tools to clarify thinking, and to organize and present data. Presents an integrative summary discussion at the end of each chapter that highlights key concepts and issues raised in the chapter Provides comprehensive checklists at the end of each chapter to review what has been accomplished before proceeding to the subsequent chapter. Includes an annotated bibliography in each chapter for easy referral to additional relevant sources. Completing Your Qualitative Dissertation is a must-have resource for any student contemplating a qualitative research project, thesis, or dissertation, and equally valuable to researchers undertaking and writing up their qualitative research.
