H Russell Bernard, author of the bestselling textbook Research Methods in Anthropology and a world figure in the social sciences, brings to the researcher and the student, the excitement of the research act as never before. The author follows two chapters on the fundamentals of social science and social research by three on preparation, two on interviewing, one on scaling, and two on relative advantages and methods of participative, direct and indirect observation. Six further chapters take the student from the basics of analysis by way of methods for analyzing qualitative data to those for quantitative data analysis, culminating in multivariate analysis, which the author identifies as the key to the most interesting social research of all. Each chapter concludes with key concepts, a summary, exercises and further readings.

This introduction to research methods covers all the major topics at a depth of detail that's thorough without being overwhelming. Using clear, accessible language and examples from real research, Lawrence Neuman discusses both qualitative and quantitative approaches to social research, emphasizing the benefits of combining various approaches. - Covers the same topics as Social Research Methods but with less technical detail. - Shows students that social research is a highly important enterprise, and one that is not beyond their abilities. - Uses many examples from real research in major studies to show students the origins of the findings and information used in textbooks or the media. - Emphasizes that social research is not a matter of following fixed procedures and routines, but something that requires creativity, mature judgment, personal integrity, and a commitment to free and open inquiry. - Material in 5/e on historical development of social research, philosophical assumptions for doing research in particular ways, and more sophisticated data gathering and analysis techniques has been largely eliminated.

Using Narrative in Social Research

Qualitative and Quantitative Approaches

Author: Jane Elliott

Publisher: SAGE

ISBN: 1446227383

Category: Social Science

Page: 232

'Jane Elliott's examination of the use of "narrative" within the broad context of social science inquiry is a must-read for both qualitative and quantitative researchers, novice and expert alike' - Journal of Advanced Nursing `This important book does an impressive job of synthesising a complex literature and bringing together both qualitative and quantitative methods of narrative analysis. It will become a milestone in the development of narrative methods. Although ground-breaking in many ways, it is very clearly written and accessible to readers from a wide variety of backgrounds and methodological experience' - Nigel Gilbert, University of Surrey `An elegantly written, scholarly and accessible text. Jane Elliott shows a sophisticated appreciation of contemporary methodological developments, and makes a persuasive case for the use of narrative approaches in both qualitative and quantitative research. The book challenges and advances debates about combining methods, and shows how stories can work within and across conventional research boundaries. It is a truly original contribution to the literature' - Amanda Coffey, Cardiff School of Social Sciences `An outstanding book. Jane Elliott breaks new ground by demonstrating to new generations of social scientists how the power of narrative can fruitfully be harnessed in social research. This is a "must read" book' - Professor Mike Savage, University of Manchester This is a lucid and accessible introduction to narrative methods in social research. It is also an important book about the nature, role and theoretical basis of research methodology in general. Jane Elliott instructs the reader on the basic methods and methodological assumptions that form the basis of narrative methods. She does so in a way that is practical and accessible and in a way that will make the book a favourite with students and experienced researchers alike. Elliott argues that both qualitative and quantitative methods are characterised by a concern with narrative, and that our research data can best be analyzed if it is seen in narrative terms. In concrete, step-by-step terms she details for the reader how to go about collecting data and how to subject that data to narrative analysis, while at the same time placing this process in its wider theoretical context. She works across the traditional quantitative/qualitative divide to set out the ways in which narrative researchers can uncover such issues as social change, causality and social identity. She also shows how the techniques and skills used by qualitative researchers can be deployed when doing quantitative research and, similarly, how qualitative researchers can sometimes profit from using quantitative skills and techniques. "This book provides both a fascinating and a challenging read. What sets this text apart from other books on research methodology and methods is that it does not focus exclusively on either quantitative or qualitative research approaches, but rather attempts to bridge the divide. The book should be compulsory reading not only for those aspiring to undertake narrative research and those students undertaking higher degree research courses, but also for those more experienced researches wishing to explore contemporary issues in research methods and methodology. As a recent recruit to a lecturer-practitioner post with little recnt experience in the subject area covered by this book, i found it met my needs very well. I would certainly recomment this book for purchase." Dr Andrew Pettipher, University of Nottingham, UK.

Perspektiven der empirischen Alter(n)ssoziologie

Author: Andreas Motel-Klingebiel,Udo Kelle

Eine alternde Gesellschaft wird die Bedingungen des menschlichen Zusammenlebens grundlegend ändern und stellt die Alterssozialpolitik und die empirische Sozialforschung vor neue Herausforderungen. Bereits die in den vergangenen Jahrzehnten stattgefundene Ausbildung einer eigenständigen Lebensphase des höheren Lebensalters hat entscheidende Impulse für die Alterspolitik und -forschung gegeben. Alter hat hohe Konjunktur und gilt als Zukunftsthema schlechthin. Mit dieser wachsenden gesellschaftlichen Bedeutung des höheren Lebensalters geht eine Flut von empirischen Forschungsarbeiten einher. Davon ist natürlich auch und gerade die Alter(n)ssoziologie betroffen. Doch die Forschungsmethoden der allgemeinen empirischen Sozialforschung lassen sich nur bedingt und unter Berücksichtigung der Spezifika des Gegenstandes auf die empirische Alter(n)sforschung übertragen. Der Band versucht daher Perspektiven der empirischen Alter(n)ssoziologie aufzuzeigen. Dabei werden quantitative und qualitative Ansätze gleichermaßen berücksichtigt und deren Integrationsmöglichkeiten für das Feld der Soziologie des Alter(n)s ausgelotet.

It begins with a discussion of the paradigm wars between positivism and constructivism, explains the difference between using mixed methods in just the research methodology portion of a study versus using mixed model studies across all phases of the process, and then presents a typology of mixed methods and mixed model studies.
