Abstract
This book acts as a resource for readers who would otherwise have to piece together the methodology about qualitative research from a range of journal articles. It brings balance to the options available to researchers, including approaches that have not had a substantial uptake among researchers. It provides arguments for when and why researchers or other parties of interest should opt for a certain approach to synthesis, which challenges they might face in adopting it and what the potential strengths and weaknesses are compared with other approaches.
