PLEASE RESPOND TO EACH QUESTION WITH AT LEAST 250 WORDS CITATION AND REFRENCE…
1.Researchers may wish to conduct qualitative research to investigate a specific phenomenon when few or no qualitative studies are published on the matter. Imagine you are a member of a research team debating whether to conduct a qualitative or quantitative study on the health care needs of the community you serve with residual grant funding. As the qualitative specialist, how would you convince the quantitative research specialists in your team that qualitative research is justified? Simply noting there is a dearth of qualitative research on the problem or that other researchers have recommended qualitative research on the problem is not a strong enough argument. How would you justify the need to do qualitative research based on its merits for understanding the phenomenon? Explain.
Note: Rather than providing insights into the topics of mental health, immigration, or urban community services, focus your discussion post on the research methodology, research design, and data collection process to resolve this applied research example.
2.Researchers must make a case about the merits of their research and try neither to overstate nor underestimate study results. This includes addressing research strengths and limitations. All research has potential limitations either inherent in the methods used or created through errors in the conduct of the research. Researchers should describe actual or potential study limitations and how these could be minimized or avoided. With that in mind, imagine you are a peer reviewer for a scholarly journal and are asked to review a qualitative research study submitted for publication and to provide the editor feedback regarding whether it should be accepted, revised, or rejected. What concerns with the research might surface during your review that may lead you to recommend that the manuscript be revised or rejected? What aspects of the research may persuade you that the manuscript should be accepted with minor or no revisions? Justify your arguments for and against publication of the study by highlighting the significance of identified strengths and limitations.
Note: Rather than providing insights into the possible topics of the article, focus your discussion post on the research methodology and design to resolve this applied research example.
