The SAGE Encyclopedia of Qualitative Research Methods

The SAGE Encyclopedia of Qualitative Research Methods

Presents current and complete information as well as ready-to-use techniques, facts, and examples from the field of qualitative research in a very accessible style. In taking an interdisciplinary approach, these two volumes target a broad audience and fill a gap in the existing reference literature for a general guide to the core concepts that inform qualitative research practices. The entries cover every major facet of qualitative methods, including access to research participants, data coding, research ethics, the role of theory in qualitative research, and much more—all without overwhelming the informed reader.


The Practice of Research in Criminology and Criminal Justice

Like its predecessors, the Fourth Edition provides complete coverage of the use and results of the contemporary methods employed in criminology and criminal justice research today. Specifically designed for undergraduate and beginning graduate criminal justice courses and programs, this text teaches research design and techniques within the context of substantive criminology and criminal justice issues of interest to students who will become professionals in the field. Students learn about the wide realm of research methods available to them, delve deeper into topics relevant to their field of study, and benefit from the wide variety of exercises included that help them practice as they learn.


Fundamentals of Research in Criminology and Criminal Justice

Using a lively, informal writing style to address research methods questions, The Fundamentals of Research in Criminology and Criminal Justice sheds light on how criminal research is conducted and helps students understand and appreciate the results. This brief textbook, derived from Bachman and Schutt’s popular The Practice of Research in Criminology and Criminal Justice, Third Edition, offers more concise examples and less coverage of more complex methods than the original. Using both quantitative and qualitative studies, The Fundamentals of Research delineates how each methodology has been used to improve our understanding of criminal justice-related issues.


Making Sense of the Social World

Ideal for students who need to understand methodologies and results, but who may never undertake major research projects themselves, Making Sense of the Social World: Methods of Investigation offers an innovative, accurate introduction to social research with balanced treatment of qualitative and quantitative methods, integration of substantive examples and research techniques, and consistent attention to the goal of validity and the standards of ethical practice. This Third Edition of Daniel F. Chambliss and Russell K. Schutt’s bestselling text features a new chapter on evaluation research, a new chapter on research ethics, revised coverage of qualitative methods and updates throughout the text.

Making Sense of the Social World: Methods of Investigation, Third Edition, is intended as a core text for courses in Research Methods offered in departments of sociology, criminal justice, social work, communication, media studies, political science, and public administration.


Investigating the Social World

In this new Sixth Edition of his perennially successful social research text, author Russell K. Schutt continues to make research come alive through research stories that illustrate the methods presented in each chapter and hands-on exercises that help students learn by doing. Investigating the Social World, Sixth Edition helps readers understand research methods as an integrated whole; appreciate the value of both qualitative and quantitative methodologies; and understand the need to make ethical research decisions, while also learning about contemporary social issues like homelessness, drug abuse, and the effect of the Internet on social relations.

The Sixth Edition features a new streamlined introduction to research; new and updated social research examples and end-of-chapter exercises; new coverage of qualitative techniques such as narrative analysis, conversation analysis and visual methods; a greater focus on racial, ethnic, gender, and cultural diversity; and expanded coverage of ethical issues.


The Practice of Research in Social Work

Principles of evidence-based practice come alive through illustrations of actual social work research in this Second Edition of Rafael J. Engel and Russell K. Schutt’s innovative The Practice of Research in Social Work. The authors introduce research methods as an integrated set of techniques for investigating the problems encountered in social work, directly linking each topic to issues associated with ethics, diversity, and evidence-based practice. Enabling students to critically evaluate research literature and develop the skills to engage in research and practice evaluation, the book emphasizes methods of particular concern in social work research and devotes chapters to group, survey, single subject, and qualitative designs.
