Values in Qualitative and Quantitative Research
Duffy, Maureen; Chenail, Ronald J.
Counseling and Values, v53 n1 p22 Oct 2008
The authors identify the philosophical underpinnings and value-ladenness of major research paradigms. They argue that useful and meaningful research findings for counseling can be generated from both qualitative and quantitative research methodologies, provided that the researcher has an appreciation of the importance of philosophical coherence in working within a particular research tradition. Moreover, the authors recognize that the research world is one of methodological pluralism; they discuss particular critical values central to conducting research and evaluating research findings. Finally, the authors demonstrate that there is not a 1-to-1 correspondence between a research method and the research paradigm. (Contains 1 table.)
