Case Study Research: Design and Methods (5th ed.) by Robert K. Yin. Read online.
To make matters worse, I see the term "case study" thrown around like crazy in this internet world, suggesting that it really is a method that anyone can do. Yin addresses the criticisms of case studies head on and attends to them in a very clear way. This book, in my opinion, is one of the most practical, useful books on the topic of case study design. The book is succinct, highly readable, and well-written. I urge anyone who wants to do a case study to pick up a copy of this book There were a few things that were helpful about research analysis, but other than that, the info about setting up a case and that sort of thing seemed pretty self-explanatory and can be understood through reading a chapter or section of an overview to qualitative analysis.
Yin's text also only really applies to a certain kind of case study, ones that are more like quantitative studies, and didn't really apply to This is seen as the standard in case study texts, but I didn't find it that helpful.
Yin's text also only really applies to a certain kind of case study, ones that are more like quantitative studies, and didn't really apply to studies that focus on meaning and theory development. I liked Swanborn's Case Study Research much better. Especially interesting was to find out principles and recommendations for data collection. Triangulation - quite useful for my research. Another thing I took from the book is the usefulness of a pilot study.
Now I feel that this research is going to be really di Very good book which clarifies the aims and use of case study research in a simple understandable language.
Now I feel that this research is going to be really difficult I have a quite a few sound reasons for the 5 star rating. In the first place, I must admit that I am a slow reader.
But the slowness gives me much time to develop a deep understanding about what I am reading. So far, I've finished reading several methodology texts in the area of social sciences, such as Research design: Qualitative, quantitative, and mixed methods approaches J.
Creswell , Qualitative research design J. Maxwell , Bas This is one of the best methodology textbooks that I've read. Comparatively speaking, Creswell's book is a disaster; I recommend Yin and Maxwell.
If you choose a methodology text based on the number of citations, you might be tricked. I don't want to go further with the content of each textbook listed above. I just want to say, when evaluating a textbook, you must ask yourself a question "Can this book really help me with my research?
