BMJ has a series of articles about reading, understanding, and appraising qualitative research - a good set for the teaching file. BMJ has a complex online <-> print publishing system which I don't exactly understand and I can't exactly tell which issue these are from (the were all grouped together in a recent table of contents announcement from BMJ) - so here are the individual articles:
- An introduction to reading and appraising qualitative research.
- Grounded theory, mixed-methods, and action research.
- Discourse analysis.
- Why use theories in qualitative research?
- Ethnography (from the text: "ethnography is the study of social interactions, behaviours, and perceptions that occur within groups, teams, organisations, and communities").
- Critically appraising qualitative research.
