Using grounded theory as an example, this paper examines three methodological questions that are generally applicable to all qualitative methods. How should the usual scientific canons be reinterpreted for qualitative research? How should researchers report the procedures and canons used in their research? What evaluative criteria should be used in judging the research products? We propose that the criteria should be adapted to fit the procedures of the method. We demonstrate how this can be done for grounded theory and suggest criteria for evaluating studies following this approach. We argue that other qualitative researchers might be similarly specific about their procedures and evaluative criteria.
In this paper 2 We address three related methodological issues. How should the usual scientific canons be redefined for qualitative research in social science? How should qualitative researchers report the procedures and canons used in their research? What evaluative criteria should be used in judging the products of particular studies? These products are not all identical in type because researchers variously aim at producing rich descriptions, ethnographic fact-finding accounts, narratives that yield verstehen, theoretical analyses of particular phenomena, systematic theory, or politically intended consciousness-raising documents. Presumably, researchers who aim at such different goals will use at least somewhat different procedures. If so, we should not judge the results of their research by the same criteria.
