THE ATTITUDE OF OMANI RESEARCHERS TOWARDS THE USE OF QUALITATIVE RESEARCH METHODS IN HUMAN STUDIES، KNOWLEDGE AND USE
The study aimed to measure researchers' attitudes in the humanities, educational and psychological sciences in the Sultanate of Oman and the degree of their knowledge and use of the qualitative research methodology. The application of a survey scale (the questionnaire) to answer the study's questions was designed by the researcher and judged by the specialists. It was applied to the available sample (144) researchers and researchers from a community of unknown numbers (according to the National Center for Statistics in the Sultanate of Oman) inside and outside the Sultanate. The study found a weakness in the level of knowledge and use of this approach and a strong tendency towards the desire to use due to the presence of an applied defect and fear of experience and application of the tools of the qualitative approach.
