Scholarcy highlights

  • 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 argue that other qualitative researchers might be specific about their procedures and evaluative criteria
