Ron Chenail: The Future Is Here; It Is Just Not Widely Distributed Yet"—Adapted from William Gibson
Keywords:The Qualitative Report, generic qualitative researcher, designer qualitative researcher, changing influences
AbstractCHENAIL and LICHTMAN explore how the field of qualitative research has developed in the United States since the early 1990s. CHENAIL characterizes himself as a generic qualitative researcher rather than a designer qualitative researcher. We reminisce about how qualitative research has become an accepted form of conducting research in many disciplines, including family therapy, education, nursing, and business; we talk about how we were barely heard in those early days. CHENAIL discusses some of the new ideas in qualitative research such as ZALTMAN's metaphor elicitation technique, MISHLER's exemplars, and a combination industrial--amusement research park. As the Editor and driving force of The Qualitative Report, CHENAIL's contributions are substantial and far-reaching. URN: urn:nbn:de:0114-fqs0403113
