E. 5 The qualitative research process. with Cormack’s statement that the world can never be mastered as there are always opportunities for further research to support or refute previous work. The qualitative research process The qualitative research process is often more flexible and less sequential than the quantitative process in that phases often occur simultaneously or have to be revisited; for example in the grounded theory approach, data is analysed as it is gathered and is compared with previous data using the ‘constant comparative method’.

It focuses on explaining, exploring or describing how and why the world operates in particular ways. It focuses on supporting or refuting theories about social relationships and world events which in turn lead to the generation of new ideas, principles and theories.
