“The applications enhance the original material because it gives the reader concrete examples.”
“Yin is much more in-depth on case study methods both within a general qualitative text and any other case study text I have seen.”
very thoruogh introduction
Very good introduction to Case Study design. I have used case study approach for my PhD study. I would recommend this book for an indepth understanding of case study design for research projects.
Dr Siew Lee School of Nursing, Midwifery and Paramedic Practice Robert Gordon University, Aberdeen.
The book is a really good introduction to case study research and is full of useful examples. I will recommend as the definitive source for students interested in pursuing this further in their projects.
In our Doctor of Ministerial Leadership (DML), Case Study is the Methodology that is required in this program. Robert Yin's book provides the foundational knowledge needed to conduct research using his Case Study design.
Very reader friendly-easy to read using simple language. Chapters 2 and 3 very useful.
Yin has developed the science and philosophy of Case Study research to a fairly high level over the years - 20 years ago case studies were not considered rigorous, perticularly for doctoral candidates, but he has changed that - this is the required text for case studies.
NEW TO THIS EDITION:
- Includes 11 in-depth applications that show how researchers have implemented case study methods successfully.
- Increases reference to relativist and constructivist approaches to case study research, as well as how case studies can be part of mixed methods projects.
- Places greater emphasis on using plausible rival explanations to bolster case study quality.
- Discusses synthesizing findings across case studies in a multiple-case study in more detail.
- Adds an expanded list of 15 fields that have text or texts devoted to case study research.
- Sharpens discussion of distinguishing research from non-research case studies.
- The author brings to light at least three remaining gaps to be filled in the future:
- how rival explanations can become more routinely integrated into all case study research;
- the difference between case-based and variable-based approaches to designing and analyzing case studies; and
- the relationship between case study research and qualitative research.
- Numerous conceptual exercises, illustrative exhibits, vignettes, and a glossary make the book eminently accessible.
- Boxes throughout offer more in-depth real-world examples of research.
- Short, sidebar tips help succinctly explain concepts and allow students to check their understanding.
- Exercises throughout offer students the chance to immediately apply their knowledge.

“With its highly readable style, this book is well suited to the needs of research students. Throughout it addresses the practicalities at a level that connects immediately to thorny issues in relation to the quality of the data, the quality of the analysis: in short the quality of the research.” - Jane Payler, University of Winchester
Case Study Research in Practice explores the authors practical and uniquely personal approach to the theory and practice of case study research. Author Helen Simons draws on her extensive experience in conducting and teaching case study research to provide a comprehensive and insightful account of the process of conducting case study that tackles common misconceptions and addresses the questions often raised by students. In four sections, the book covers:
- The rationale, concept and design of case study research
- Methods and ethics in case study
- Interpreting, analyzing and reporting the case.
- Generalizing and theorizing in case study research
Including examples and summary memos the author has created a dynamic text that presents readers with choices and challenges to inform the conduct of their case research.
This is an ideal text for students studying and conducting case study research in education, health and social care, and related social science disciplines.

Interview with arch woodside on case study research: theory, methods and practice, by arch woodside.
As discussed in this interview, Case study research: theory, methods and practice looks at the research processes involved in conducting methods including: participant observation; fuzzy set social science; decision systems analysis; forced metaphor elicitation technique; ethnographic decision tree modeling; mapping strategic thinking; the historical method; storytelling research; and, conversational analysis. Example case studies are both international and interdisciplinary and as varied as golf tourism, and household gardeners buying and using seeds plants, to an Austrian corporate business-to-business brand, and a multinational electronics firm with headquarters in New York City. This book reviews and applies the best classic and contemporary contributions to literature on case study methods from several disciplines providing strong rationales for adopting case study research methods alone or in mixed-methods. It addresses the principal criticisms of case study research as well as offering new definitions and applications of theories and techniques and proposing advances in the field. The diverse coverage found in this title not only features well-known theories and practices but is not afraid to examine valuable but little-used case data analysis techniques such as degrees of freedom analysis. It offers a depth of explication and demonstration of techniques and theories not found in other publications.
