Written together with contributor Bailey (U. of Groningen), it is intended to introduce the process of qualitative research to novice and more advanced qualitative researchers across disciplines and fieldwork sites. It is based on and structured according to the Hutter-Hennink qualitative research cycle model, which consists of a "research design cycle" addressing the research question, literature and theory, the conceptual framework, and the field work approach; an "ethnographic cycle" addressing the design research instrument, recruitment of participants, collection of data, and inference making; and an "analytic cycle," devoted to the development of theory, development codes, description and comparison, and categorization and conceptualization.|
