The debate continues but the emphasis is more about 'quality'

Date of publication: January 1, 1998

Author: Peter Sampson


The Monograph will try to explain what is meant by 'quality' and how it may be achieved and improved upon. Its contributors argue that to achieve real quality requires discipline - in the design, execution, analysis, interpretation and presentation of qualitative studies and their results. It requires the acceptance of certain rules that guide what should be done; and it requires the rejection of practices or 'sins' that mitigate against quality. It requires both a sense of order and of creativity, two notions that might appear to contradict but, when truly aligned, are indeed complementary.
