Article
It has become essential and urgent that significant actors in the management field of research become aware of the current rejection of previously accepted philosophical caricatures. The unrealistic though ‘tidy’ paradigmatic dichotomy, positivism/quantitative/deduction versus interpretivism/qualitative/induction, is being rejected. Instead, a grow...

Grounded theory (GT) is taught in many doctoral schools across the world, and exemplified in most methodological books and publications in top tier journals, as a qualitative research method. This limited view of GT does not allow full use of possible resources and restrains researchers’ creativity and capabilities. Thus, it blocks some innovative...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
In 2006, Suddaby wrote a very interesting piece detailing what Grounded Theory (GT) “is not” that listed six common misconceptions: an excuse to ignore the literature, a presentation of raw data, theory testing, content analysis or word count, routine application of formulaic techniques to collected data, easiness, an excuse for the absence of meth...
Book
This Reader brings together several of the most requested papers published in The Grounded Theory Review between 2004 and 2011. It is intended to serve as a sourcebook of methodological realization and motivation for anyone in undertaking a grounded theory (GT) study, whether novice or experienced. The papers included offer good advice from those w...
Book
While the number of academic departments offering training in classic grounded theory methodology is limited and widely dispersed, there are many more researchers world-wide who are making the effort to learn and do grounded theory (GT) on their own. We trust that the Reader will prove to be an excellent sourcebook whether readers are pursuing thei...

This paper outlines my concerns with Qualitative Data Analysis' (QDA) numerous remodelings of Grounded Theory (GT) and the subsequent eroding impact. I cite several examples of the erosion and summarize essential elements of classic GT methodology. It is hoped that the article will clarify my concerns with the continuing enthusiasm but misunderstoo...
Article
The world of Qualitative Data Analysis (QDA) methodology became quite taken with UNCOLN and GUBA's book "Naturalist Inquiry" (1985). 1 have no issue with it with respect to its application to QDA; it helped clarify and advance so many QDA issues. However, its application to Grounded Theory (GT) has been a major block on GT, as originated, by its co...

Full-text available
Theoretical codes (TCs) are abstract models that emerge during the sorting and memoing stages of grounded theory (GT) analysis. They conceptualize the integration of substantive codes as hypotheses of a theory. In this article, I explore the importance of their emergence in the development of a grounded theory and I discuss the challenge of the res...
Article
Full-text available
The goal of grounded theory is to generate a theory that accounts for a pattern of behavior that is relevant and problematic for those involved. The goal is not voluminous description, nor clever verification. As with all grounded theory, the generation of a basic social process (BSP) theory occurs around a core category. While a core category is...

Article
Full-text available
This article explores the use of grounded theory to generate conceptualizations of emergent social patterns in research data. The naming of patterns and their abstraction across time, place and people, are discussed. The constant comparative method employed in grounded data analysis is offered as a developmental tool for enhancing researchers' abil...
Article
Death, as a social ritual, is one of the great turning points in human existence, but prior to this classic work, it had been subjected to little scientific study. American perspectives on death seem strangely paradoxical--the brutal fact of death is confronted daily in our newspapers yet Americans are unwilling to talk openly about the process of...
Article
In this paper we conceptualize dying as a non-scheduled status passage, which has led us to consider problems of how the people involved handle its timing. The analysis focuses on temporal aspects of the central issues of (1) legitimating when the passage occurs, (2) announcing the passage to others, and (3) co-ordinating the passage.
Article
Currently, the general approaches to the analysis of qualitative data are these:1.) If the analyst wishes to convert qualitative data into crudely quantifiable form so that he can provisionally test a hypothesis, he codes the data first and then analyzes it. He makes an effort to code “all relevant data [that] can be brought to bear on a point,” an...
Article
The authors contend that qualitative research should be scrutinized for its usefulness in the discovery of substantive theory. They try to present generic elements of the process of generating substantive theory from qualitative data, and consider how the researcher collects and analyzes qualitative data, max imizes the theory's credibility, puts t...
Article
This paper presents a definition and typology of "awareness contexts" and offers a paradigm for their study. The paradigm emphasizes the developmental interaction processes deriving from given awareness contexts, and directs attention to transformations of those contexts. The writings of four sociologists are located within the paradigm with respec...
Article
: Inevitably, a social value is placed on a patient, and that value has much to do with the impact on the nurse of his dying and, frequently, on the care he receives. So the authors have discovered in a study they, with a nurse faculty member, Jeanne Quint, are making of hospital personnel, nursing care, and dying patients at the University of Cali...
