  • Developing typologies in qualitative research: the use of ideal-type analysis

    Ideal-type analysis is a relatively new addition to the family of qualitative research methods, which offers a systematic, rigorous method for constructing typologies from qualitative data. This article is a summary of our approach to conducting ideal-type analysis. We hope that this article will help researchers to consider whether using ideal-type analysis may be a suitable approach for their own studies. Authors: Stapley, E., O'Keefe, S. & Midgley, N.
