Abstract "Some main attributes of Grounded Theory Methodology (GTM) are discussed, especially the concept of GTM research as a complex iterative process. This concept has, so far, been partly ignored in favour of a focus on GTM only as a set of analysis procedures. Discussing GTM also means acknowledging that different versions of GTM exist, as evidenced for example in the ongoing debate on 'emergence' vs. 'forcing'. The heatedness of this debate partly stems from the fact that the coding procedures used by Glaser on the one hand and Strauss (and Corbin) on the other hand are not incompatible as such, rather the differences mainly concern underlying epistemologies." (author's abstract)

Die Verfasser diskutieren Charakteristika der Grounded Theory Methodology (GTM) und gehen in diesem Zusammenhang besonders auf des Konzept der GTM-Forschung als komplexen iterativen Prozess ein. Dieses Konzept wurde bislang teilweise zugunsten einer Schwerpunktsetzung auf GTM als Satz von Analyseverfahren ignoriert. Es existieren unterschiedliche Versionen von GTM, was zum Beispiel in der Debatte zwischen Glaser und Strauss (und Corbin) sichtbar wird. Verschärft wird dieser Konflikt dadurch, dass die Codierungsstrategien der Opponenten an sich nicht inkompatibel und die Differenzen in den zu Grunde liegenden epistemologischen Ansätzen zu finden sind.
