My approach enables application of descriptive phenomenology as a total method for research, and not one just focused on data analysis. This structured phenomenological approach to interviewing applies questions based on themes of experience contextualization, apprehending the phenomenon and its clarification.
The method of questioning employs descriptive and structural questioning as well as novel use of imaginative variation to explore experience. The approach will help researchers understand how to undertake descriptive phenomenological research interviews.

This article discusses the methodology of phenomenology as a qualitative research tool in nursing profession. Good phenomenologic research is more than a simple synthesis of the contents of a group of interviews. Research is not truly phenomenological unless the researcher's beliefs are incorporated into the data analysis. The researcher's thoughts, responses, and decision making process should be acknowledged and explicated throughout the entire research process.
Grounded theory is a qualitative research approach that was originally developed by Glaser and Strauss in the s. The self-defined purpose of grounded theory is to develop theory about phenomena of interest. But this is not just abstract theorizing they're talking about. Instead the theory needs to be grounded or rooted in observation -- hence the term. Grounded theory is a complex iterative process.
The research begins with the raising of generative questions which help to guide the research but are not intended to be either static or confining. As the researcher begins to gather data, core theoretical concept s are identified. Tentative linkages are developed between the theoretical core concepts and the data. This early phase of the research tends to be very open and can take months. Later on the researcher is more engaged in verification and summary.
The effort tends to evolve toward one core category that is central. Eventually one approaches conceptually dense theory as new observation leads to new linkages which lead to revisions in the theory and more data collection.
Before research is begun a discussion of the researcher’s interpretations of the phenomenon, prior to the beginning of research, must be identified (Campbell, Introductive Methods to Qualitative Research: Course Notes, n.d., p. 4), (Campbell, Introduction to Methods of Qualitative Research: Video Series, )4.
"Phenomenology" and qualitative research methods. Nakayama Y. Phenomenology is generally based on phenomenological tradition from Husserl to Heidegger and Merleau-Ponty. As philosophical stances provide the assumptions in research methods, different philosophical stances produce different methods.
Phenomenology in business research focuses on experiences, events and occurrences with disregard or minimum regard for the external and physical reality. Phenomenology, also known as non-positivism, is a variation of interpretivism, along with other variations such as hermeneutics, symbolic interactionism and others. A qualitative "approach" is a general way of thinking about conducting qualitative research. It describes, either explicitly or implicitly, the purpose of the qualitative research, the role of the researcher(s), the stages of research, and the method of data analysis. here, four of the major qualitative approaches are introduced.
Categories: Qualitative Phenomenology is different from all other research methods because its field of investigation is different from other methods. What then is . The researcher in this paper sought to identify the basic components that are integral part of any research methods while conducting a qualitative research. The researcher developed a qualitative.
