Applying Knowledge of Qualitative Design and Analysis
Baskas, Richard S.
This study compared and contrasted two qualitative scholarly articles in relation to their research designs. Their designs were analyzed by the comparison of research references and research specific vocabulary to describe how various research methods were used. When researching and analyzing qualitative scholarly articles, it is imperative to understand how research designs can be the same, but their methods of analysis can differ depending on the study, and how vocabulary describes the research being conducted. The course instructor provided two qualitative articles which were analyzed by research references provided by the student. A literature review of the two articles and that of the research references were conducted to provide a more in-depth explanation of the research designs. Analysis revealed that even though both articles shared the same research design, various analytical techniques that are used can produce different perspectives of the results.
