Qualitative Studies: Developing Good Research Questions
Bufkin, Melissa A.
Online Submission
Qualitative research is a type of research process that is widely used to give people a voice while researching a particular subject matter. In using this research process, one must understand how important it is to develop research questions within the qualitative research process. The purpose of this article is to aid researchers in the development of good research questions. A review of the literature was reviewed to provide a description of the elements necessary to create effective research questions. The development of research questions involves establishing research questions that are clear, open-ended, and researchable. The questions must also allow for the emergence of new hypotheses and additional questions as participants tell their story.
