Book description

Is there more to qualitative data collection than face-to-face interviews? Answering with a resounding 'yes', this book introduces the reader to a wide array of exciting and novel techniques for collecting qualitative data in the social and health sciences. Collecting Qualitative Data offers a practical and accessible guide to textual, media and virtual methods currently under-utilised within qualitative research. Contributors from a range of disciplines share their experiences of implementing a particular technique, provide step-by-step guidance to using that approach, and highlight both the potential and pitfalls. From gathering blog data to the story completion method to conducting focus groups online, the methods and data types featured in this book are ideally suited to student projects and other time- and resource-limited research. In presenting several innovative ways that data can be collected, new modes of scholarship and new research orientations are opened up to student researchers and established scholars alike.


‘Collecting Qualitative Data is an accessible, informative, and educational text that brings new life to qualitative methodologies. Edited by leading scholars in the field and including contributions on a diverse range of approaches to qualitative data collection, this book is a must have for anyone who utilises qualitative methods.'

Damien W. Riggs - Flinders University of South Australia

‘With classic brilliance and creativity, Braun, Clarke and Gray have curated an intellectually exciting, thoroughly accessible and methodologically expansive ‘field guide' to the practice of collecting qualitative data. The volume is a luscious invitation to new platforms for qualitative inquiry, advancing the landscape of research into the realms of internet, talk radio, online focus groups, diaries and blog based research.'

Michelle Fine - Distinguished Professor of Critical Psychology, Graduate Center of the City University of New York
