About

Overview

The Encyclopedia of Case Study Research provides a compendium on the important methodological issues in conducting case study research and explores both the strengths and weaknesses of different paradigmatic approaches. These two volumes focus on the distinctive characteristics of case study research and its place within and alongside other research methodologies. Key Features:

  • Presents a definition of case study research that can be used in different fields of study
  • Describes case study as a research strategy rather than as a single tool for decision making and inquiry
  • Guides rather than dictates, readers' understanding and applications of cast study research
  • Includes a critical summary in each entry, which raises additional matters for reflection
  • Makes case study relevant to researchers at various stages of their careers, across philosophic divides, and throughout diverse disciplines
