Instructors
& Academics:
This bestselling text pioneered the comparison of qualitative, quantitative, and mixed methods research design. For all three approaches, John W. Creswell and new co-author J. David Creswell include a preliminary consideration of philosophical assumptions, key elements of the research process, a review of the literature, an assessment of the use of theory in research applications, and reflections about the importance of writing and ethics in scholarly inquiry.

New to this Edition:

• Updated discussion on designing a proposal for a research project and on the steps in designing a research study.

• Additional content on epistemological and ontological positioning in relation to the research question and chosen methodology and method.

• Additional updates on the transformative worldview.

• Expanded coverage on specific approaches such as case studies, participatory action research, and visual methods.

• Additional information about qualitative and quantitative data analysis, social media, online qualitative methods, and mentoring and reflexivity in qualitative methods.

• Incorporation of action research and program evaluation in mixed methods and coverage of the latest advances in the mixed methods field.

• Additional information about causality and its relationship to statistics in quantitative methods.

• Incorporation of writing discussion sections into each of the three methodologies.

An invaluable guide for students and researchers across the social and behavioural sciences.
