Overview
Qualitative research has become a legitimate approach within the information systems community, but researchers have traditionally drawn upon material from the social sciences given the absence of a single source relevant to them. Qualitative Research in Information Systems: A Reader represents just such a volume and is both timely and relevant. Information systems and qualitative research articles are now widely used for teaching on many upper level courses in information systems, and there is demand for a definitive collection of these readings as a basic reader and teaching text. This book expertly brings together the seminal works in the field, together with editorial introductions to assist the reader in understanding the essential principles of qualitative research.The book is organised according to the following thematic sections: Part I: Overview of Qualitative ResearchPart II: Philosophical Perspectivespart III: Qualitative Research MethodsPart IV: Modes of Analyzing and Interpreting Qualitative DataQualitative Research in Information Systems: A Reader should become the benchmark reference point for students and researchers in information systems, management science and others involved in information technology needing to learn about qualitative research.
