Edwards, Richard; Clarke, Julia; Harrison, Roger; Reeve, Fiona
Adult Education Quarterly, v52 n2 p128-39 Feb 2002
Analyzes the way text is used in constructing and reporting research, using three representations: (1) algorithm, which presents research as a logical and sequential process; (2) strategic improvisation, arising from researchers' lived experience; and (3) reflexivity, which considers how researchers construct the world in the process of writing and reading the text. (Contains 19 references.) (SK)
