Updated to meet the needs of today's researchers, Research Design: Qualitative, Quantitative, and Mixed Methods Approaches offers a comparative study of the three main research designs and methods. It is a user-friendly manual to doing and writing research, thanks to John Creswell's contextual approach, which does away with technical jargon to help readers grasp the core concepts needed for success in research. The author uses philosophical assumptions to introduce the first steps of research, while also offering an extensive coverage of various ethical issues regarding research practice. In addition to discussing qualitative and quantitative research, the book goes deep into the workings of mixed methods research and its procedures. It is peppered with research tips and even personal notes that Creswell made based on his 35 years of experience in the field. Research Design: Qualitative, Quantitative, and Mixed Methods Approaches (ISBN 9781412965576) is especially designed for students who want to learn how to effectively write their theses, journal proposals, and dissertations. It provides a step by step guide through the research process, helping them choose the appropriate research method to use. The author divided the book into 2 parts, the first of which talk about some preliminary considerations like selecting the research design, literature review, the theory to be used, and some writing strategies, as well as various ethical considerations. The second part talks about the research design and elements such as the introduction, followed by the purpose statement or objectives, and then the research questions and hypotheses. The last chapters offer a comparative discussion of quantitative, qualitative, and mixed methods research procedures. Author John Creswell is a professor at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln (Teacher's College), where he teaches educational psychology. His specializations include qualitative and quantitative methods in education and research. In addition to his bestselling Research Design title, Creswell has also authored a wide range of research books, including Qualitative Inquiry & Research Design, Designing and Conducting Mixed Methods Approach, and Educational Research.
