Abstract:

This e-book serves as a timely point to reflect upon, critique and debate the skills and knowledge which are required by researchers to develop meaningful, informative and trust-worthy qualitative research. The editors promote social inquiry as a means of exploring and understanding the subjective nature of what one can term "lived experience" from the perspective of those who have experienced, seeking to make sense of the explanations and meanings which individuals assign to their experiences. While such a tradition has existed for many years in the social sciences, its use and adoption in the Entre/SME field has gained interest but is currently under represented. The editors, through this e-book have sought to encourage the development of reflexive articles, (conceptual and empirical), which illustrate the messy, heterogeneous and social nature of Entre/SME research. The variety of approaches offered by qualitative perspectives truly enables researchers to embrace and appreciate the complexity of human dynamics and behaviour.
