Qualitative research design is continually evolving. It is not only more established in disciplines beyond the traditional social sciences in which it is a standard choice, but also just as impacted by the changes in what data, technologies, and approaches researchers are using. This Handbook takes readers through the foundational theories, functions, strategies, and approaches to qualitative research design, before showcasing how it negotiates different data and research environments and produces credible, actionable impact beyond the study. Containing contributions from over 90 top scholars from a range of social science disciplines, this Handbook is not just an anthology of different qualitative research designs and how/when to use them; it is a complete exploration of how and why these designs are shaped and how, why, and into what they are evolving. This is a valuable resource for Master’s and PhD level students, faculty members, and researchers across a wide range of disciplines such as health, nursing, psychology, social work, sociology, and education.

Mixed methods research is becoming prevalent in many fields, yet little has been done to elevate mixed methods research in information science. A comprehensive picture of information science and its problems is needed to further understand and address the issues associated with it as well as how mixed methods research can be adapted and used. The Handbook of Research on Mixed Methods Research in Information Science discusses the quality of mixed methods studies and methodological transparency, sampling in mixed methods research, and the application of theory in mixed methods research throughout various contexts. Covering topics such as the issues and potential directions for further research in mixed methods, this comprehensive major reference work is ideal for researchers, policymakers, academicians, librarians, practitioners, instructors, and students.

Crises like the COVID-19 pandemic are wake-up calls for enterprises to review their current risk management models. This book suggests a more robust risk management maturity model and illustrates the application in crisis situations. The book surveys existing risk management maturity models and proposes a new model appropriate for assessing the risk management processes in enterprises during times of crisis. Its key advantages include the correlation of its attributes with crisis situations and an innovative methodological approach to model development. The authors use the model to examine 107 enterprises from the financial services, construction and IT sector, showing how it allows the user to identify risk management maturity changes in the aftermath of the COVID-19 pandemic. The book will interest entrepreneurs, managers and risk management professionals, who can use the model in their management processes, as well as enterprise stakeholders and academics.
