Phenomenology

Hello, we are conducting a research study that involves understanding how doctoral researchers arrive at selecting phenomenology as a methodology and the reasons for it. Participants should meet the following criteria: (1) doctoral students who have already selected phenomenology as their method and are in research phase, or (2) Ph.D.’s who have completed their dissertations within last two years.
Thanks, Dr. Hamid Kazeroony, Walden University,
