Generating Data

Four Volume Set
Edited by:

September 2016 | 1 600 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd
Generating data is the defining aspect of empirical work. Data in this respect is understood as information-capacitated material that must be discovered, mined, unearthed - or a near limitless range of similar adjectives. This major work cross-cuts a number of substantive methodologies and is structured around seven groupings of research in four-volumes which provide the context for data generation:

Volume One: Naturalistic research

Volume Two: Interrogative research and Experimental research

Volume Three: Material research and De-centred research

Volume Four: Biographic research and Secondary research

Drawing on highly influential articles from sociology, social psychology, social anthropology, and education, this is a vital collection for researchers across the social sciences.
