Riassunto: "The authors provided state-of-the-art information about mixed methods approaches to research. The book significantly expands Creswell's previous editions of mixed methods approaches to research by including four complete current studies that exemplify distinctive research using mixed methods...What becomes apparent throughout the book is the authors' interest in providing researchers with sufficient information about how to match their research problem to an appropriate design...I also highly recommend this book to anyone seeking to further their understanding of mixed methods research and acquire an in-depth analysis of the methodology."
-Patricia Montiel-Overall, The University of Arizona
Designing and Conducting Mixed Methods Research provides researchers across the social, behavioral, and health sciences with a comprehensive introduction to mixed methods research. Authors John W. Creswell and Vicki L. Plano Clark combine the latest thinking about mixed methods research designs with practical, step-by-step guidelines for the decisions that researchers face when designing and conducting a mixed methods research study.
