The Third Edition of the bestselling Basics of Qualitative Research:Techniques and Procedures for Developing Grounded Theory continues to offer immensely practical advice and technical expertise to aid researchers in making sense of their collected data. Authors Juliet Corbin and the late Anselm Strauss (co-creator of Grounded Theory) present methods that enable researchers to analyze and interpret their data, and ultimately build theory from it. Highly accessible in their approach, Corbin and Strauss provide a step-by-step guide to the research act--from the formation of the research question through several approaches to coding and analysis, to reporting on the research. Full of definitions and illustrative examples, this book concludes with chapters that present criteria for evaluating a study, as well as responses to common questions posed by students of qualitative research. Significantly revised, Basics of Qualitative Research remains a landmark volume in the study of qualitative methods.

Key Features of the Third Edition:

  • Allows for students to develop their critical thinking skills in the "Critical Issues" section at the end of each chapter.

  • Shows the actual steps involved in data analysis (from description to grounded theory) and data gathering by means of theoretical sampling.

  • Provides exercises for thinking, writing and group discussion that reinforces material presented in the text.

  • Consists of a student companion Web site at that includes real data and practice with qualitative software such

3.0 out of 5 stars 3rd Edition - Still needs editing March 23 2008
By M. Wolfenstein - Published on
The bottom line with this book is that, while it delivers the goods in terms of an introduction to grounded theory, it's poorly written for a 3rd edition. By the time a text book is in its third version it should be tight, and I'm afraid this book just isn't. Structurally the book is basically fine, but I found myself mentally editing various sentences and paragraphs as I read it because it simply wasn't written very well. This is particularly annoying for a pair of respected qualitative researchers, seeing as language is the stock and trade of qualitative work.

Additionally, I felt like it was a little terminology heavy for terms that are not universally accepted as common language for discussing qualitative research, but I'm more forgiving in this latter regard. We are generally a bit challenged in the field when it comes to common language, and there remains a residual need to demarcate one's academic territory.

Three stars . . . it could have earned 4 with better writing/editing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Valuable ethnographic research (grounded theory) methods text book April 3 2011
By limnos - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I am a UBC Okanagan graduate student working on an interdisciplinary MA focused on water governance. This term during an ethnographic methods course I was introduced to Corbin and Stuass's 'Basics of qualitative research 3e' and the software MAXQDA10. I purchased the book online during class.

This book provides a novice ethnographic researcher with valuable insights into the methods and context required to support grounded theory work. This text will serve social science researchers well; especially anthropology majors interested in applying the principles of grounded theory to support and context one's methods work. This book also provides a good overview and helpful hints for using using coding software MAXQDA10 - which is another helpful, and reasonably priced analytical tool for graduate researchers.

I would highly recommend this book to any aspiring ethnographer.
4.0 out of 5 stars Very Detailed & descriptive. Dec 21 2009
By A. Johnson - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I purchased this text to gather the step by step information on understanding and following appropriate qualitative research analysis protocol. It has been some years since I studied this area. I found this text to be helpful in this respect. It is a bit dense and complex in use of terminology at times. But I found I had a better understanding of the principles and rules attached to conducting good qualitative research analysis.
3.0 out of 5 stars Book arrived with all pages... Feb. 6 2014
By Don D. Bouchard - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
But the first chapter fell out when I opened it. After taping things back together, it's all good. I needed the text for my last doctoral studies class, and didn't need a new book, but having the pages intact would have been nice.

I'm a grad student and was desperately looking for a book to help me learn how to use grounded theory for my data. Buying this book was probably the best decision I could have made. Very clear explanations and helpful examples provided by Corbin.
