Research design: qualitative, quantitative and mixed methods approaches
Alison Twycross , Glasgow Caledonian University, UK
The second edition of Creswell’s book has been significantly revised and updated. The author clearly sets out three approaches to research: quantitative, qualitative and mixed methods. As someone who has used mixed methods in my research, it is refreshing to read a textbook that addresses this. The differences between the approaches are clearly identified and a rationale for using each methodological stance provided.
