Abstract

Qualitative research is crucial in exploring the complexities of human experiences, behaviors, perceptions, and social phenomena. It is particularly effective in generating hypotheses, exploring new research topics, and capturing the subjective aspects of human interaction and experience. It emphasizes social, economic, and political context, cultural nuances, and participants' voices for comprehensive and holistic understanding. Determining an appropriate sampling method and adequacy of sample size remains a challenging aspect of qualitative research methodology. This paper highlights the key issues related to sampling approaches, sample size, and trustworthiness in qualitative research.
