Sinopsis Buku

Qualitative approaches are now growing its popularity among
novice researchers. Thus, they need to be well-informed step by
step in conducting the qualitative studies. Particularly, this book will
benefit students who keen to focus on finding solution on the language
related issues and concerns.
A number of features are provided for novice scholars and
researchers in order to be able to select the appropriate design for their
study. The first feature is detail characteristic information on each type
of the research approach. Each approach is elaborated in detail manner
so that readers will possess comprehensible input of what and when
a particular approach will be appropriately selected and employed.
The detail characteristics of each approach in qualitative have been
discussed in many research methodology books published earlier.
However, this book can be used as the supplementary resources for
those who specifically focus on the qualitative approach when they
are dealing for the first time and more specifically for the language
research and its related issues.
The second feature is the example of each approach. Since qualitative
approaches have a lot of similarities, the researchers are supposed to
have careful thought when selecting a particular approach. This can be
very difficult for novice researchers. Therefore, in order to guide them
selecting the most appropriate approach for their study, the examples
of the previous research using similar approach are provided. The
examples of the previous research on each particular approach are
carefully chosen so that it possibly relates and represents Indonesian
Another distinguished feature of this book is supplied the
information on several common fallacies that scholars or novice
researcher usually argue about the qualitative approach. For example,
many novice researchers in Indonesian context still believe that in qualitative approach, they are not supposed to use numerical data.
That might not be true. The discussion on some fallacies like the
above-mentioned example hopefully can guide them to have no more
doubts of employing qualitative approach.
