Do you know your Positivist from your Grounded theory?

This article by Michael Myers is described as a 'living scholarship' and therefore provides an evergrowing source on Qualitative Research in Information Systems. It also includes a very useful overview of Philosophical Perspectives (a three-fold classification: positivist, interpretive and critical). Myers also describes four types of Qualitative Research Methods (action research, case studies, ethnography and grounded theory); Data Collection Techniques; and Modes of Analysis (hermeneutics, semiotics, and narrative & metaphor). There's also links to the main software analysis tools as well as other resources..
