Ms. Lori Stroud, MA and Doctor of Philosophy Candidate provides a study primer on the critical aspects of phenomenological research methods for the novice social science researcher. Phenomenological research is considered foundational to the social sciences and is most appropriate for completing research within business studies. Business research typically considers the personally held understandings and beliefs of its stakeholders and as such considers lived experiences.
The primer is meant as an overview for the novice social science researcher and provides a place to start when considering phenomenological research methods. The Bibliography contains a good source of first references from where a more in-depth literature research may be completed. The primer may be found on the Monarch Management Review website at:
