“phrases” as codes in Constructive Grounded theory design 1 Reply

what is the danger of having “phrases” as codes….for instance, I couldn’t make my codes short….they are kind of “phrases”  like the following… Deciding to become independent, Wishing one’s vision…Continue

Is there any paper that focuses on  characteristics of Straussian GT? I really need that to do my own comparison with Classical GT. Thanks.

Hi there, Can you give me some advice about how many interview should I conduct for my GT study? And how long should each interview be? Thanks.

I'm writing up my PhD thesis using classical GT, but I'm not sure of a good structure for organising it.  My initial thoughts are:

  • introduction (written last!)
  • Background - why this area of research
  • Methodology - why classical GT, discussion identifying different types of GT, and how I identified my participants at the beginning of my study - participant characteristics changed as a result of the emerging theory
  • Present a brief overview of the theory as an introduction to a more detailed presentation of each category, beginning with the "problem" identified by participants, then moving to the core category and subsequent categories
  • Discussion
  • Critique
  • Conclusion/implications for practice

Does this sound at all reasonable?

Any suggestion or reference on how to apply the method for a research on 'urban consumption?' how and what city people consume, spend, and do their everyday life? Thanks

The following has been posted by a colleague, Helen Scott.  It will help many of you I am sure.

Very good news for GT researchers - the Grounded Theory Review http://groundedtheoryreview.com/ is now an open access journal with many examples of grounded theory amongst its archives. Congratulations to editor Astrid Gynnild and the GT Review team. For those of you wishing to publish, Astrid writes that they are "interested in grounded theories and methodological papers as well as papers on teaching and learning grounded theory, and shorter conceptual discussions". What I particularly like about this journal is that the emphasis in review is on improving papers - so those of you who are less experienced in getting published, your work will be in safe hands! Helen

Hi everyone,

I am a grad student who is working on a large sclae cohort study. Our participants are mainly Cacausian (white) preganant women and we are interested in their health and wellness. However, to  have a more clear idea on the whole society I am going to do 4 focus groups with some multiethnic women who are outside my sample. Is there a way to integrate the data for 600 women which is a quantitative study with 20 women who attend the focus group? the focus group will look at the women's barrier

I am so confused, is it a multi-methods study or 2 completely different study

Thanks
