A practical guide to the core issues of design for qualitative and quantitative research in political science

'The internal structure of each of the chapters nicely fits the hands-on approach taken in this book. Each chapter starts by introducing and discussing the specific research design issue addressed within it. Five to ten practical guidelines are then given as to how to translate the abstract reasoning into concrete research. Finally, examples of real research are used to illustrate the abstract discussion and to provide flesh to the guidelines. The second strong point is the distinction made between outcome-centric and factor-centric research, or in other words research that seeks to identify the causes of an outcome (or effect) and that research that is interested in the effect of a specific cause. While others have made this distinction before, this book elaborates on the consequences of this distinction for several elements of the research design such as the implications for the function of typologies (chapter by Lehnert) and the selection of independent variables (Sieberer) the volume devotes a chapter to the very start of the research process the identification of the research question. Here the emphasis is on increasing the relevance of the research question by discussing theoretical and societal relevance.' - Markus Haverland, Erasmus University of Rotterdam, the Netherlands in European Political Science, December 2010Reseña del editor:
Research designs can be distinguished along various dimensions, but all face the same set of core issues. What is a relevant research problem? How can the concepts and measurements be improved? Which and how many variables and cases should be selected? What theoretical conclusions can be drawn from the research? Which evidence would lead to a rejection and reformulation of the initial theory?
This volume was written to help advanced students of political science and neighbouring fields to think about these issues and develop practical solutions for their own research. The distinction between qualitative and quantitative research can often be inadequate. Some solutions to research design problems are common to both types of research; others cross-cut the traditional qualitative-quantitative divide. Including a chapter on choosing a research question, this book provides practical guidelines for both qualitative and quantitative designs, discussing the typical trade-offs involved in choosing them, and is rich in examples from real research.
