  • [] [] [] [] [] [] [] [ [] [] [] [] [][] Qualitative Research in Information Systems Section Editor: Welcome Welcome to the ISWorld Section on Qualitative Research in Information Systems (IS)

  • This section aims to provide qualitative researchers in IS - and those wanting to know how to do qualitative research - with useful information on the conduct, evaluation and publication of qualitative research

  • Introduction This section is dedicated to qualitative research in Information Systems (IS)

  • Qualitative research involves the use of qualitative data, such as interviews, documents, and participant observation data, to understand and explain social phenomena

  • Qualitative researchers can be found in many disciplines and fields, using a variety of approaches, methods and techniques

  • In Information Systems, there has been a general shift in IS research away from technological to managerial and organizational issues, hence an increasing interest in the application of qualitative research methods

  • After a general overview of qualitative research, philosophical perspectives which can inform qualitative research are discussed

    How to Read a Scientific Research Paper--
    A guide on how to critically read a scientific research paper, one of the key
    components of the scientific method.

  • How to Read a Scientific Research Paper-- a four-step guide for students Ann McNeal, School of Natural Science, Hampshire College, Amherst MA 01002 Reading research papers ('primary articles') is partly a matter of experience and skill, and partly learning the specific vocabulary of a field

  • What larger question is this a part of? The author should summarize and comment on previous research, and you should distinguish between previous research and the actual current study

  • Often, the simple questions may contain the seeds of very deep thoughts about the work--for example, 'Why did the authors use a questionnaire at the end of the month to find out about premenstrual tension? Wouldn't subjects forget or have trouble recalling?' Here are some questions that may be useful in analyzing various kinds of research papers: Introduction: What is the overall purpose of the research? How does the research fit into the context of its field? Is it, for example, attempting to settle a controversy? show the validity of a new technique? open up a new field of inquiry? Do you agree with the author's rationale for studying the question in this way? Methods: Were the measurements appropriate for the questions the researcher was approaching? Often, researchers need to use 'indicators' because they cannot measure something directly--for example, using babies' birthweight to indicate nutritional status

  • The search for the SMA gene has necessitated clinical diagnostic criteria that are precise and acceptable to researchers and genetic counselors throughout the world

  • These issues were recently reviewed by Dubowitz.(12) It is hoped that the nosology will soon be resolved to the patient's benefit and researcher's relief

  • The landmark report by the Columbia University researchers mapping the SMA gene to chromosome 5 (1) has ushered in the molecular genetic phase of attempts to understand and treat SMA

  • In the initial paper linkage was reported only for chronic cases (types II and III), but shortly thereafter it was shown that type I mapped to the same locus.(36) These observations were almost immediately confirmed by French researchers.(37, 38) Subsequently, although the suspect region has been progressively narrowed and the mapping refined, (39, 40) as of this writing the gene has not been identified

    CERT® Coordination Center Research
    A dissertation analysing Internet security incidents.

  • This research analyzed trends in Internet security through an investigation of 4, 299 security-related incidents on the Internet reported to the CERT ® Coordination Center (CERT ® /CC) from 1989 to 1995

  • Prior to this research, our knowledge of security problems on the Internet was limited and primarily anecdotal

  • This research accomplished the following: 1) development of a taxonomy for the classification of Internet attacks and incidents, 2) organization, classification, and analysis of incident records available at the CERT ® /CC, and 3) development of recommendations to improve Internet security, and to gather and distribute information about Internet security

  • Estimates based on this research indicated that a typical Internet domain was involved in no more than around one incident per year, and a typical Internet host in around one incident every 45 years

  • The taxonomy of computer and network attacks developed for this research was used to present a summary of the relative frequency of various methods of operation and corrective actions

  • Data from all incidents and these three subgroups were used to estimate the total Internet incident activity during the period of the research

  • QUANTITATIVE 'VERSUS' QUALITATIVE RESEARCH: THE WRONG QUESTION Hope Olson School of Library and Information Studies 3-20 Rutherford South University of Alberta Edmonton, AB, Canada T6G 2J4 e-mail: Résumé: Avec un étude déconstructif des textes sur des méthodes qualitatives et ses contrastes avec des méthodes quantitatives et avec l'étude des besoins informatiques à l'égard des populations spécifiques de femmes cette document conclut que le focus sur les méthodes utilisées ne devrait pas motiver la recherche

  • Abstract Through a deconstructive reading of texts on qualitative method and its contrast with quantitative method and through information needs studies regarding specific populations of women this paper concludes that the focus on method should not drive research

  • Rather, the ontological and epistemological stances of researchers assessed on a spectrum from subjective to objective are more indicative of the perspectives represented in library and information science research

  • I wonder if there is any research on this aspect of relationships between geeks and their family/friends - strategies of supporting someone else's encounters with technologies and lessons learnt from it

  • This would be such a great source of insights with lots of technology design/technology introduction implications (itching to do some of that myself, but probably should try not to get distracted :) And a funny side-not observation - I always thought I was much into workplace uses of technologies research, but it seems that my personal experiences get me more into home and family stuff
