5 PROBLEMS Inappropriately used of method Data collection? The low quality of data Weak back ground & research question Unclear Objectives Weak data analysis and interpretations Poorly Language used

6 What is a Qualitative Research?

7 QUALITATIVE RESEARCH (CRESWELL, 1998) An inquiry process of understanding based on distinct methodological traditions of inquiry that explore a social or human problem. The researcher builds a complex, holistic picture, analyzes words, reports detailed views of informants, and conducts the study in a natural setting.

8 QUALITATIVE RESEARCH (DENZIN & LINCOLN,1994) Involves a study which uses collection of a variety of empirical materials. For instance : case study, personal experience, introspective, life story, interview, observational, interactional and visual texts, that describe routine & problematic moments and meaning in individual s lives(p.2).

9 QUALITATIVE RESEARCH (ROSSMAN & RALLIS, 2003, PP.8-10) Takes place in the natural world Uses multiple methods that are interactive & humanistic Focuses on context Is emergent rather than tightly refigured Is fundamentally interpretative

10 QUALITATIVE RESEARCH Is not a substitute for a quantitative research. Must not be used just to avoid statistical analysis.

11 The researchers must QUALITATIVE RESEARCH (CRESWELL, 1998) be committed to work extensive time in the field. be engaged in the complex time-consuming process of data analysis. write long passages; the evidence must substantiate claims & the researcher needs to show multiple perspectives.

12 ARTICLE SURVEYS IN INDONESIAN JOURNALS (BUDIHARDJO, 2013) Language Content Others Poor Indonesian or English Theories used are not relevant References are not well presented Inappropriate use of semantic Not well synthesized theories Use of model is weak Inappropriate style and tone Weak and unclear research back ground Tables & figures are not well presented Poor Translation Poor abstract Punctuation marks are well placed Unclear paragraph Unclear conclusion Quotations are not well written The relation/links between sentences and paragraphs are not coherence. Research method is not well applied Data is not well presented Unclear sentences ( dangling, clauses) Research design is poor Citations are not well presented Sentences are not logical Objectives are not clear Title is too long and not relevant Redundancy and consistency Data Analysis is weak (interpreting skill of the researcher is weak) The use of research method is not well described

13 COMMON MISTAKES Abstract is badly organized and written. Research background is broad and not focus. Research objectives are not clear. Theoretical review is not properly organized. Theories used are not well synthesized. Data Analysis is weak. Conclusion is not relevant.

14 MISTAKES IN QUALITATIVE RESEARCH Data = Findings Superficial analysis and interpretation Lack of thick description Forcing a framework or concepts Wrong sampling Over generalization

15 The Qualitative Research Process

16 THE QUALITATIVE RESEARCH PROCESS Choosing a subject & approach ---- problem statement Reviewing literature Formulating research question, purpose of the study Sampling / Collecting data Considering Ethical issues Analyzing data qualitatively Findings Ensuring the quality of the findings : verification/ triangulating. Writing the article for a journal

17 Starting a Qualitative Research

18 PROBLEM STATEMENT In the introduction: a researcher should state what the problem is as it will guide him/her to what is going to be studied. Problem statement : known as the need of the study must be clearly formulated.

19 PURPOSE STATEMENT It indicates the main objective of the study. It provides an important roadmap for readers to know the intent or purpose of the study. It must be written clearly but briefly.

20 RESEARCH QUESTION ( BOEIJE, 2010) The central question which a researcher wants to answer by doing the research. The research problem must be sufficiently focused & defined; it is a foundation to formulate clear research questions.

21 QUALITATIVE RESEARCH Descriptive question What experiences do the teenagers in Jakarta have with criminal and risky behavior during the night life? [This deals with the what of the social phenomena] Explanatory Question How do criminal experiences of the teenagers in Jakarta relate to their use of alcoholic drink? [This deals with the why of the phenomena]

22 RESEARCH QUESTIONS How can we explain the extent and nature of football hooliganism at different football clubs and in different countries, and variations therein over time? ( Spaaij, 2006). What are undergraduate medical students perceptions and experiences of teaching in relation to gender and ethnicity? ( Lee & Kim, 2007). Do psychiatric/mental health nurses provide meaningful caring response to suicidal people, and if so, how? ( Cutcliffe, Stevenson, Jackson & Smith, 2006).

23 ETHICS IN QUALITATIVE RESEARCH Researchers must consider ethical issues in their activities in relation with the respondents/informants funders Other parties who might have a negative implications of the research Etc.

24 ETHICAL ISSUES ( ADJUSTED FROM BOEIJE, 2010) Ethical Principles, such as informed consent, Privacy, Confidentiality). Professional standards, such as good research proposal, the benefits, costs and risk for participants, qualified researcher). o Sensitive Topics o Reporting results

25 ETHICAL ISSUES IN DATA ANALYSIS Related to the competence boundaries ( Miles & Huberman, 1994). The quality of qualitative data analysis depends on the interpretative skills of the researchers. Unanalyzed data or incorrect interpretations lead to erroneous findings and be very dangerous.

26 QUALITATIVE DATA COLLECTION Participant observation Observation Qualitative interviewing ( in-depth, ethnographic, phenomenological, elite, FGI) Focus group discussion Narratives Life Histories Historical analysis Visual data Documents others

27 Paradigm Assumptions

28 QUANTITATIVE & QUALITATIVE PARADIGM ASSUMPTIONS ( FIRESTONE, 1987; GUBA & LINCOLN (1988) & MCCRACKEN, 1988) 1. Ontological Assumption ( What is the nature of reality?) Quantitative Reality is objective and singular apart from the researcher. Qualitative Reality is subjective and multiple as seen by participants in a study.

29 2. Epistemological Assumption ( What is the relationship of the researcher to that researched?) Quantitative Researcher is independent from that being researched. Qualitative Researcher interacts with that being researched.

30 3. Axiological Assumption ( What is the role of values?) Quantitative Value-free and unbiased. Qualitative Value-laden and biased.

31 4. Rhetorical Assumption ( What is the language of research?) Quantitative Formal and based on set definitions Impersonal voice Used of accepted quantitative words Qualitative Informal Evolving decisions Personal voice Accepted qualitative words

32 5. Methodological Assumption ( What is the process of research?) Quantitative Qualitative Deductive process Cause and effect Inductive process Mutual simultaneous shaping of factors Static design categories isolated before study Context-free Generalizations leading to prediction, explanation, and understanding Accurate and reliable through validity & reliability. Emerging design-categories identified during research process Context-bound Patterns, theories developed for understanding Accurate and reliable through verification / triangulation

33 VALIDATING THE ACCURACY OF FINDINGS -- QUALITATIVE Validity is used to suggest determining whether the findings are accurate from the standpoint of the researcher, participant or reader (Creswell & Miller, 2000). trustworthiness, Authenticity & credibility. How? Triangulation Member validation Use Rich, thick description Clarify the bias Present negative or discrepant information Spend prolonged time Use peer debriefing Use an external auditor

34 Writing an article for a journal

35 ARTICLES SURVEYS IN INDONESIAN JOURNALS (BUDIHARDJO, 2013) Language Content Others Poor Indonesian or English Theories used are not relevant References are not well presented Inappropriate use of semantic Not well synthesized theories Use of model is weak Inappropriate style and tone Weak and unclear research back ground Tables & figures are not well presented Poor Translation Poor abstract Punctuation marks are well placed Unclear paragraph Unclear conclusion Quotations are not well written The relation/links between sentences and paragraphs are not coherence. Research method is not well applied Data is not well presented Unclear sentences ( dangling, clauses) Research design is poor Citations are not well presented Sentences are not logical Objectives are not clear Title is too long and not relevant Redundancy and consistency Data Analysis is weak interpreting skill is weak The use of research method is not well described

36 COMMON MISTAKES Abstract is badly organized and written. Research background is too broad and not focus. Research objectives are not clear. Theoretical review is not properly organized. Theories used are not well synthesized. Data Analysis is weak. Conclusion is not well written.

37 OTHERS References are not well written Use of model is weak Tables & figures are not well presented Punctuation marks are well placed Quotations are not well used for instance the use of. ; ; etc. Data presentation is adequate Citations are not well presented Title is too long and not relevant
