Interviews in Qualitative Research PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Interviews in Qualitative Research free pdf Interviewing is used very widely in qualitative research, and takes many different forms. The qualitative interview is also a method that is constantly evolving, in response both to theoretical and technological developments. King and Horrocks present a clear and thorough guide to the use of interviews in contemporary qualitative research. Writing in an accessible style, with many practical examples, the authors explore: the key debates in the philosophy and theory underlying interview methods- how to design and carry out interviews- the special requirements of group and remote (telephone and online) interviewing- and, the central issues of reflexivity and ethics. The book also features a chapter which introduces the principles and practice of the thematic analysis of interview data, and the book concludes with a detailed consideration of the use of interviews in two major qualitative research traditions: phenomenological and narrative approaches. "Interviews in Qualitative Research" is a must-have text for students and researchers planning to use interview methods for themselves. It is aimed at a broad range of disciplines with examples drawn from across the social, educational and health sciences.
