Could help me find step by step approach to the use of grounded theory in research?

As many qual researchers may tell you, the “step by step” is different from each set of data depending on your goals and where the data leads you. With that said, Charmaz’s grounded theory text has been very helpful in thinking about my data analysis but also provides insight into setting up a grounded theory project.

It basically depends on which Gt approach you choose for your research. Actually, there are several guides on Glaser’s Gt, or Strauss’, Schatzman’s or Clarke’s propsitions of Grounded Theory. If your choice is a construtivist Gt, I do recommend the Clarke´s book.

Nortey is this any good as an introduction? http://groundedtheoryonline.com/www/what-is-grounded-theory – scroll down for the steps for a Glaserian Grounded Theory.
Its a very new site which we launched on Friday so critical feedback and suggestions for content are very welcome.

Have you read Glaser’s books? The three we suggest are Doing GT, Discovery, and Theoretical Sensitivity. Classic GT is “started” with a Grand Tour question. The problem is that there really isn’t a step-by-step process for CGT as it is cyclical. There are, however, some GT researchers who have tried to present the process as you wish. You can look for Dr. Glen Gatin’s 2009 dissertation on Keeping your distance. You can also look for the 2011 article by Jones and Alony called Guiding the use of grounded theory in doctoral studies–an example from the Australian film industry. International Journal of Doctoral Studies, 6, 95-114. If you’d like to talk about GT, I’d be happy to answer your questions via Skype (BarryCh209).10th December 2013 at 12:02 pm #5415Aslı BekmenParticipant
Cathy Urquhart’s book “GT for Qualitative Research” is quite helpful if you use the Glaserian approach.11th December 2013 at 10:27 am #5414
Thank you so much sir.
i am going to study the articles as you mentioned. i am also interested to contact with you on Skype and for this I’ve send you contact request on your Skype ID.

big thanks sir…..13th December 2013 at 9:44 pm #5407
Nortey: You need to read Barney Glaser’s books on GT: Discovery of Grounded Theory, Doing Grounded Theory, and Theoretical Sensitivity. In addition, the book by Stern and Poor (Essentials of Accessible Grounded Theory) and the book by Martin and Gynnild (Ground theory: The philosophy of Barney Glaser) are very, very useful.
