Mixing methods: qualitative and quantitative research

Mixing methods: qualitative and quantitative research

Brannen, Julia, 1944-

This book focuses on a key issue in the methodology of the social and behavioural sciences: the mixing of different research methods. The extent to which qualitative and quantitative research differ from one another has long been a subject of debate. Although many methodologists have concluded that the two approaches are not mutually exclusive, there are few books on either the theory or the practice of mixing methods
