|Title:||'Validity' Issues in Qualitative Research in Social Sciences: View from Two Angles, Have a Better Look||Contributor(s):||Khan, Ashfaq A (author)||Publication Date:||2012||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/12391||Abstract:||Outcomes under the qualitative research paradigm are usually fiercely challenged by academics and practitioners. The method therefore requires a 'holistic' approach to analysing a particular phenomenon in order to address 'validity' and 'generalizability' issues. Looking at an object from more than one angle understandably gives a better look. In this conceptual paper I argue that through my use of the theoretical underpinnings from two established research theories - Institutional Theory and Laughlin's Organizational Change Model, to 'view' the empirical data collected for my case study research for my PhD, I provide evidence that looking at the research issue and the relevant empirical data from the perspective of a combination of two or more established theories would conclude the research with relatively more 'valid' and 'generalizable' research outcomes.||Publication Type:||Conference Publication||Conference Name:||MIICEMA 2012: 13th Malaysia-Indonesia International Conference on Economics, Management and Accounting - Asia Emerging Economy Toward Global Economy Integration, Palembang, Indonesia, 18th - 20th October, 2012||Conference Details:||MIICEMA 2012: 13th Malaysia-Indonesia International Conference on Economics, Management and Accounting - Asia Emerging Economy Toward Global Economy Integration, Palembang, Indonesia, 18th - 20th October, 2012||Source of Publication:||Proceedings of The 13th Malaysia-Indonesia International Conference on Economics, Management and Accounting (MIICEMA), v.2, p. 1-16||Publisher:||Sriwijaya University||Place of Publication:||Palembang, Indonesia||Field of Research (FOR):||150199 Accounting, Auditing and Accountability not elsewhere classified||Socio-Economic Outcome Codes:||900201 Administration and Business Support Services||Peer Reviewed:||Yes||HERDC Category Description:||E1 Refereed Scholarly Conference Publication||Statistics to Oct 2018:||Visitors: 154
