Running Head: Qualitative & Quantitative Research Designs

Significance of Qualitative & Quantitative Research Designs in Resolving Basic and Applied Problems

Use of Qualitative Research Designs for Solving Basic and Applied Problems
Qualitative research is a category of research methods in which researcher takes a vigorous role in communicating with the participants he or she wants to analyze. Qualitative research designs are the methods that produce verbal summaries of research determinations with no statistical sum-ups or analysis. Qualitative research designs produces flow diagrams and substance descriptions of events or processes (Ehigie & Ehigie, 2005). Different qualitative research designs engross discourses of how people go through and feel events in their lives, and can be a good implies of generating hypotheses and theories of what comes about in organizational settings.
The selected qualitative research designs resolve basic and applied problems in the following manner:
Case Study:
This research design is a very well-liked research design of qualitative analysis and includes a vigilant and absolute observation of a social unit, be that unit a person, a family, an institution, a cultural group or even the integral community. With the help of this research design an individual factor whether it is an institution or just an episode of the life of an individual or a group is analysed in its association to other any other in the group (Ehigie & Ehigie, 2005). One of the significant basic examples of this research design is the ...

Post the completed matrix to the Assignment Discussion for review by your peers.

Select four published research articles related to your general research interest and field of study. Select two quantitative research studies and two qualitative research studies. You may substitute a mixed methods study for one of the qualitative or quantitative studies. Ensure that each of the studies you selected was published in a peer reviewed journal.

Write a 1,400-to 1,750-literature review in which you analyze each study from Part I and II. Consider following points while constructing a logical and critical literature review.
What is known about the research topic you are interested in? From which angles has this research topic been studied?
What is not known about your topic? How can you justify a new research study from this literature gap?
What germinal theory is related to your topic? How does this germinal theory guide you toward developing a research question that is derived from literature gap?
Which research paradigm serves as the foundation for each of the selected articles?
What questions have you generated from the literature review that might be worth pursuing further?
