Portman, Tarrell Awe Agahe
This paper provides descriptive statistics related to published articles which utilized qualitative methodologies in research studies, as well as conceptual articles pertaining to qualitative research methodologies. The articles examined covered the years 1967-1999. During the 32-year time period, 15 qualitative research articles were published. The greater percentage of these articles were published in volume 77 of the "Journal of Counseling and Development" (JCD) in 1999. These articles had multiple authors for the most part. All 15 articles were submitted by authors who were from different educational institutions. There was no repetition of authors or institutions within this group. There were 5 articles published that utilized mixed methodologies. These articles primarily focused on quantitative data in the study and utilized qualitative data as support for the quantitative data. The sample size for the qualitative research studies ranged from single case studies to a large group study in the mixed studies. The mean sample size including the large group was 44.5. Excluding the large group, the mean sample size was 28.4. Conceptual articles in JCD have embraced the use of qualitative research with specific counseling issues or populations. Using qualitative procedures in assessment has been discussed and rebutted in the JCD. (Contains 4 tables and 34 references.) (MKA)
