“It is my observation that studying dissertations in one's field is the best way to learn how to do one, to write one, and to see what one looks like. Reading dissertations is a modeling phenomenon on many dimensions. The purpose of Gerund Grounded Theory is to provide models for the grounded theory dissertation based on a basic social process theoretical code model. It gives the general idea of a Basic Social Process dissertation and the grounded theory methodology behind it.” - Barney G. Glaser Ph.D.
