Méthodes qualitatives, quantitatives et mixtes

Dans la recherche en sciences humaines, sociales et de la santé

LA MÉTHODE EST LA PIERRE ANGULAIRE DE LA RECHERCHE appliquée en sciences humaines, sociales ou de la santé, car c’est elle qui balise le chemin qu’emprunte le chercheur pour réaliser son projet. Elle doit soutenir le processus de réflexion en fonction du contexte dans lequel s’inscrit le projet, soit tenir compte de la question de recherche, du phénomène et de la population à l’étude. Dans un monde de la recherche de plus en plus décloisonné et vaste, il devient nécessaire de disposer d’une perspective englobante, capable d’intégrer les apports de diverses approches méthodologiques tout en reconnaissant leurs particularités propres. Cet ouvrage, en évitant le traditionnel clivage entre méthodes qualitatives et quantitatives, présente 26 devis ou analyses de recherche dont, entre autres, l’étude de cas, la théorisation ancrée, la revue de littérature systématique, l’essai randomisé, l’analyse de concept, le groupe de discussion focalisée, les analyses multiniveaux, la modélisation par équations structurelles et les approches participatives. Partout dans l’ouvrage, des ponts sont aussi établis entre les méthodes de recherche qualitatives, quantitatives et mixtes afin de mettre en lumière leurs points communs et leurs articulations. Leurs applications concrètes permettront également au lecteur de reproduire le cheminement méthodologique emprunté par les auteurs.

The author’s accessible writing style, the wealth of examples, and the numerous exercises provide opportunities for practicing and refining the skills of becoming a qualitative researcher. The new edition focuses on the development of research proposals (Ch. 2); the history and concerns of institutional review boards (IRBs) and issues qualitative researchers sometimes confront when submitting proposals (Ch. 6); greater information and examples on coding and thematic analysis, while also introducing other approaches to data analysis (Ch. 7); and arts based research through a chapter that encourages consideration of creative ways to approach and represent inquiry (Ch. 9). Chapter 10 looks at sharing research results through participation at conferences and in publications.
