About this item

Classic Grounded Theory: Applications with Qualitative and Quantitative Data is unique in its presentation of classic grounded theory, from its historical origins to step-by-step guidance on how to carry out a research project using the original Glaser and Strauss approach. The book will serve as a core guide for students and researchers undertaking a study using classic grounded theory methodology. Judith Holton and Isabelle Walsh draw upon Barney Glaser’s extensive work, offering a more accessible guide to the principles and procedures for doing a research study using the ‘full package’ of classic GT methodology. The book presents classic GT as distinct from the various, evolved versions within the qualitative paradigm; clarifies misconceptions that have emerged about GT methodology as it was originally conceived; addresses specific challenges that researchers encounter when undertaking a study using the classic methodology; addresses issues in using both quantitative and qualitative data; and offers practical guidelines and examples of using the classic GT procedures with different types of data. Each chapter ends with a short “Test Your Knowledge” quiz, and suggestions for further reading. The back of the book includes a comprehensive glossary of key terms used, extracts from three studies that used classic GT approaches, examples of coding, and examples of diagrams.
