The perfect combination—a textbook and a reader by John W. Creswell and Vicki Plano Clark—available for only $76.95 as a bundle! Designing and Conducting Mixed Methods Research combines the latest thinking about mixed methods research designs with practical, step-by-step guidelines for the decisions that must be made in designing a mixed methods research study. "Mixed methods research" is defined as a procedure for collecting, analyzing, and mixing both quantitative and qualitative data in a single case study or series of studies and is becoming more common in studies across the social, behavioral, and health sciences as well as education. The Mixed Methods Reader is divided into two parts: Part I – Methodological Selections and Part II – Exemplar Research Studies. Part I includes a collection of 14 foundational writings from the mixed methods research literature. These readings convey the overall development and evolution of mixed methods research and address essential topics for researchers new to the field of mixed methods research. These topics include its foundations; design types; implementation issues such as sampling, data analysis, and validity; rhetorical devices for reporting mixed methods studies; and critiques about the current thinking in the field. Part II includes 9 exemplar mixed methods research studies drawn from a range of disciplines and international scholars. The studies were intentionally selected to illustrate four major types of mixed methods designs. As with the methodological chapters, the editors organize the exemplar research studies so that the reader can see a natural progression of the different approaches to conducting mixed methods research.

Das Buch führt anhand konkreter Vorgehensweisen in die Diskussion und Praxis der Triangulation ein. Es zeichnet Ursprung und Geschichte des Konzepts sowie kritische Diskussionen nach. Triangulation sollte sich nicht in der reinen Verbindung von Methoden erschöpfen. Erst in der Verknüpfung deren theoretischer Hintergründe entfaltet sie ihr Potential. An praktischen Beispielen wird die Triangulation verschiedener qualitativer und von qualitativen mit quantitativen Methoden dargestellt. Ausgewählte Studien mit diesen Formen werden vorgestellt, um die Beurteilung des Nutzens und des Aufwandes von Triangulation zu erleichtern. Praktische Durchführungsprobleme von Triangulationsstudien werden als Leitfaden für Studierende behandelt. Die Bedeutung von Triangulation als Kriterium qualitativer Forschung, in der Verallgemeinerung und als Mittel der Erkenntnis wird an ihrer Verwendung in den unterschiedlichen Schritten des Forschungsprozesses verdeutlicht.
