Phenomenography is the second title in the Qualitative Research Methods series.
Since the early 1970s, when Ference Marton and his colleagues
Roger Säljö, Lars-Öwe Dahlgren and Lennart Svensson undertook the
pioneering work which led to the establishment of phenomenography, a
large number of academics around the world have become interested in
their way of doing research. Many have adopted phenomenographic methods
in their own work and often this has begun through personal interaction
with an experienced phenomenographer.
However, it is clear that there are considerable variations in
the methods used by different phenomenographic researchers and even by
the same researcher in several investigations. This monograph aims to
provide an insight into different phenomenographic approaches and show
the development of the research techniques that occur during research
The Qualitative Research Methods series is intended primarily to
assist postgraduate research students in understanding the different
qualitative research methods and to enable students to choose the most
appropriate method for their particular research. Each monograph will
also include accounts from recent postgraduate students. The last
title, A Student Guide to Qualitative Research, takes the
perspective of the new postgraduate student and deals with the kinds of
choices that need to be made along the pathway to a successful thesis.
These monographs will also be a valuable aid and support to supervisors using qualitative research.
