In the area of business and management, the SAGE Handbook of Qualitative Business and Management Research Methodologies offers a comprehensive review of the most recent developments in the field of qualitative research methods.
The Handbook celebrates the diversity of the discipline by drawing from a wide range of traditions and by bringing together a number of outstanding academics from around the world who are involved in the study of a variety of themes using a variety of qualitative research methodologies. In the chapters, we discuss the conceptual underpinnings of several research methodologies, as well as contemporary illustrations, references, and directions for the practical application of these methodologies. Because of this, the two volumes can serve as a helpful resource for Ph.D. students and early career researchers who are interested in growing and expanding their knowledge and practice of qualitative research. As a result of its coverage of both known and emergent approaches, it also serves as a very useful source of information for academics who teach qualitative research methodologies.
The contents of the Handbook are divided into two volumes, and each volume focuses on one of seven primary topics:
History and Customs are Covered in This First Volume

These include positivism, pragmatism, constructionism, interpretivism, poststructuralism, critical hermeneutics, postcolonialism, critical realism, grounded theory, mixed methods, indigenous approaches, and feminist research.
Ethnography, action research, field research, case studies, and research designs such as process and practice approaches are covered in Part 2 of this guide.
