Introduction Case study research has grown in reputation as an effective methodology to investigate and understand complex issues in real world settings.
To make matters worse, I see the term "case study" thrown around like crazy in this internet world, suggesting that it really is a method that anyone can do. Yin addresses the criticisms of case studies head on and attends to them in a very clear way. This book, in my opinion, is one of the most practical, useful books on the topic of case study design.
The book is succinct, highly readable, and well-written. I urge Case study research yin who wants to do a case study to pick up a copy of this book There were a few things that were helpful about research analysis, but other than that, the info about setting up a case and that sort of thing seemed pretty self-explanatory and can be understood through reading a chapter or section of an overview to qualitative analysis.
Especially interesting was to find out principles and recommendations for data collection. Triangulation - quite useful for my research. Another thing I took from the book is the usefulness of a pilot study. Now I feel that this research is going to be really di Very good book which clarifies the aims and use of case study research in a simple understandable language.
Now I feel that this research is going to be really difficult I have a quite a few sound reasons for the 5 star rating. In the first place, I must admit that I am a slow reader. But the slowness gives me much time to develop a deep understanding about what I am reading.
Qualitative, quantitative, and mixed methods approaches J. CreswellQualitative research design J. If you choose a methodology text based on the number of citations, you might be tricked.
I just want to say, when evaluating a textbook, you must ask yourself a question "Can this book really help me with my research?
Or it is bad. I did not get anything from Creswell after I finished that dictionary-like text. To determine the quality of a text, audience should consider two factors: First, is the writer a researcher? Second, is the writing of the text based on sound research? If the author is not a real researcher, how could he write a reasonable book to help you understand how to research?
They know how to research and it is very possible for them to explain and convey the essence of how to do. Note that he received strict training in psychology at MIT. He is the founder of grounded theory. I should say his book is good even for those who does not prefer this method.
After all he is hard-working and he also conducts studies in the area of education. From his big books, I am not sure if you really can make sense. At the same time, we must pay attention to the soundness of the literatures on which the textbook writing is based.
If the writing is based on empirical studies, it is more possible for the book be successful than those based mainly on explanation, theories, and book chapters without empirical studies.
Across that book, he recommended many books and articles of empirical research. With the help of Yin and some example books that he recommended, possibly, you will know how to do research.Case Study h Researc FourthEdition.
