Qualitative Research Design

Phenomenology

Standardized as a phenomenological research methodology by Moustakas (1994), the modified van Kaam (1959) method involves understanding the essence, meaning, and structure of an individual’s lived experiences. AMSTAT Consulting uses this methodology to look for patterns and trends by identifying shared beliefs.

Case Study

A case study is a research methodology that has commonly used in social sciences. A case study is a research strategy and an empirical inquiry that investigates a phenomenon within its real-life context. Case studies are based on an in-depth investigation of a single individual, group, or event to explore the causes of underlying principles. A case study is a descriptive and exploratory analysis of a person, group, or event. A case study research can be single or multiple case studies, includes quantitative evidence, relies on multiple sources of evidence, and benefits from the prior development of theoretical propositions. Case studies are an analysis of persons, groups, events, decisions, periods, policies, institutions, or other systems that are studied holistically by one or more methods.

Qualitative Analysis

Thematic Analysis

Briefly, thematic analysis (TA) is a popular method for analyzing qualitative data in many disciplines and fields, and can be applied in lots of different ways, to lots of different datasets, to address lots of different research questions! It is one of a cluster of methods that focus on identifying patterned meaning across a dataset. TA is best thought of as an umbrella term for a set of approaches for analyzing qualitative data that share a focus on identifying themes in qualitative data. The different versions of TA tend to share some degree of theoretical flexibility but can differ enormously in terms of both underlying philosophy and procedures for producing themes.

Meta-Analysis

Meta-Analysis is a methodology employed to synthesize the outcomes of various studies related to the same topic or outcome measure. We can achieve the integration of research findings through qualitative means. Qualitative meta-analysis follows the same replicable procedures of a quantitative meta-analysis; however, it is interpretive rather than aggregative. It is critical to define the domain of research and establish criteria for including studies in the review.

Analytic Induction

We are experts in observing events, stating a hypothesis, observing additional events, and evaluating whether the new observations follow the hypothesis. We can ease the process for anyone who uses analytic induction.

Logical or Matrix Analysis

Logical or matrix analysis emphasizes the processes of reasoning while analytic induction relies on observations. Thus, how the answer is found is as important as what the answer actually is.
