Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingBook chapterResearch

Abstract

The aim of this chapter is to contribute to the debate by arguing for an approach to validity in which (1) the domain of discovery and the domain of justification are brought together and are seen as being intertwined in a transactional sense, (2) the justification process is seen to be endowed with an experimential and a contextual dimension, and (3) a pro¬ces¬sual, historical pespective is thus adopted. In developing the arguments a background de¬scrip¬tion of the process of developing a particular qualitative research method, the Diary-in-Group method is provided.
