It accompanies the students in an interesting research journey from the first phase (Identifying the inquiry and stating the problem) until the last phase (Reporting and sharing research findings) of doing
research. It prepares the students for their training in qualitative research by setting the foundations on the
general rules and practices in scientific research.
While the textbook guides the students in every phase of the research process, it also introduces them to the
principles underlying qualitative research, both on its ontological and epistemological foundations as well as the methodological issues associated with qualitative research.
In the end, the book does not only equip the students with the knowledge and skills of doing qualitative research, but also to be conversant in debates over the foundations of the social sciences and human sciences.
Dr. Ernesto Y. Sibal was one of the few Filipinos in academic publishing who can irrefutably lay claim to these three titles—Patriot, Pioneer and Innovator. A staunch patriot, Dr. Sibal fiercely advocated the vision of designating Filipino-authored books for young Filipino learners. This vision was enabled by the establishment of Alemar’s Bookstore in 1958, and through the foresight and drive of Alegria Rodriguez, who shared in the vision of her husband, she helped galvanize then fledgling Alemar's Bookstore as the place to go for textbooks and school needs, propelling it to become the first established bookstore chain in the country.
