The grounded theory method is founded on a view of analysis whereby the research and potential hypotheses are not articulated at the outset; rather, the researcher initially seeks to gain familiarity with a research context, and only in later stages does the process become progressively morefocused and targeted. As such, grounded theory method uses familiar research tools and techniques (coding, sampling, classification) but in new and novel ways. As a result, grounded theory method is one of the most widely used - if not the most widely used - method in current qualitative research.Initially aimed at the social sciences, grounded theory method has now spread so far that it can be found in almost any subject area or discipline in which people are observed or interviewed as participants. In Grounded Theory and Grounded Theorizing: Pragmatism in Research Practice, author Antony Bryant illustrates the key features of grounded theory method by showcasing examples from several of his most successful doctoral students. In this accessible volume, Bryant provides expert guidance on the useof grounded theory method in data collection by emphasizing the essential features of the method for readers and researchers of all training and backgrounds.
