Submitted by Sarah Neill

In the first meeting of the Grounded Theory Forum, held on April 24th, we discussed the way forward for the forum and generated some exciting ideas, including a GT blog, conference and journal. A wide ranging discussion took place on the different versions of GT and we plan to take this forward to the next meeting, on June 26th, when the second half will be given over to discussing Heath and Cowley’s 2004 paper debating the differences between Glaser and Strauss (reference below).
