From Qualitative Research to a Journal Article
Conference Proposals and Article Types
The design of a qualitative study needs to be flexible; hence the term “emergent design” is used to describe it. Researchers begin by developing ideas on ways to collect the data and make revisions as their study progresses. The flexible design includes selecting participants and sampling strategies. Participants are selected and recruited based on the knowledge they can contribute to the study, which can be amended as the study progresses. Qualitative researchers are usually often guided by the criterion of data saturation. In other words; data collection terminates when little that is new emerges from the data.
