How to Do Your Case Study

How to Do Your Case Study

  • Gary Thomas - University of Birmingham
FormatPublished DateISBNPrice

I would encourage all my students to make reference to this excellent resource. It provides a thorough, well explained foundation to case study research which will equip the reader to design and carry out their own projects. Thomas includes examples from across a number of disciplines, illustrating how to apply the theory to practice and presenting a clear discussion of how to effectively prepare, conduct, analyse and report research.

This book continues to be our first recommendation for all our undergraduate education programmes due to the clarity of its prose, its wonderfully clear structure and the use of excellent examples to illustrate key points. This new edition includes expanded discussions and a very welcome new chapter on research ethics.

This is a very comprehensive text on a case study methodology. It discusses various aspects of case studies and also as a research design, which is rather refreshing.

This is a very user friendly book on Case studies which is becoming an increasingly popular research method/methodology with undergraduates so a must on any research based module reading list

I love the book! It is very comprehensive and helpful for a new, qualitative researcher. The author offers some wonderful pearls of wisdom and how-to nuggets that will make one or more learners want to know more about conducting qualitative research, case studies, effectively. As the study progresses, the researcher is encouraged to engage the data analysis aspects by using various techniques and programs. CAQDAS programs can help the researcher expedite the processes, efficiently.

Hopefully, decisions will be positive to adopt in Fall 2017...

How to Do Your Case Study

  • Gary Thomas - University of Birmingham
  • Description
  • Author(s) / Editor(s)

Focusing on vital issues like validity, reliability and quality in research, the author helps you ensure your research is rigorous and methodologically sound. This third edition:

·       Offers an expanded discussion of key ethical issues in case study research

·       Provides up to date information about using social media in research ·       Presents a new navigation tool to help you plan your case study project ·       Enables you to develop the skills you need to become a critical and reflexive researcher

Covering international examples of case study in practice and accompanied by downloadable checklists and templates, this book is the perfect companion to help you successfully complete a case study.

Supplements

The learning features are excellent. I love the highlight boxes and the ‘If you take only one thing...’ feature. It is also good to have further reading at the end of each chapter. Overall, this is an excellent book on case study design.

On demand used as recommendation for basic literature for case study research

Have used previous editions and this book is very student user friendly and easy to understand.

Moved to a new university. Will consider adoption on courses there as the content was relevant and accessible, especially for postgraduate course.

This is an essential text for students doing case study. I work from version 2 because I have the hard copy and do not like electronic books. However, the students are signposted to this text because it is the updated version and it is a superb text. Not all students will have it as essential - just those choosing to do case study

I would like to consider this text as essential for those designing case studies. Thomas' text is comprehensive, clear and gives something more critical and thought provoking than the texts we consider seminal and classic - Yin, Stake, Bassey. Fresh, prepares for designing real research.

A good book to be placed on the student reading list.

I have already recommended the previous editions of the book as essential reading. The book provides an accessible background on case study research for both undergraduate and postgraduate education students.
