Introduction to Behavioral Research Methods (6th ed.) - PDF Free DownloadGrounded theory GT is a systematic methodology in the social sciences involving the construction of theories through methodical gathering and analysis of data. A study using grounded theory is likely to begin with a question, or even just with the collection of qualitative data. As researchers review the data collected, repeated ideas, concepts or elements become apparent, and are tagged with codes , which have been extracted from the data. As more data is collected, and re-reviewed, codes can be grouped into concepts, and then into categories. These categories may become the basis for new theory. Thus, grounded theory is quite different from the traditional model of research, where the researcher chooses an existing theoretical framework, and only then collects data to show how the theory does or does not apply to the phenomenon under study. Grounded theory is a general methodology, a way of thinking about and conceptualizing data.
