Well, I was able to submit the draft version of my paper in time (as long as 3:00 am EDT was still midnight in some time zone!), knowing that the grounded theory design I selected needed a lot more work. I thought it better to make the due date and acknowledge the areas I still need to complete and work, rather than miss the deadline completely. Some of the initial feedback I have received indicates I am moving in the right direction. I look forward to the remaining peer reviews I should get in the next few days.
So, now time to focus even more upon Kathy Charmaz’s grounded theory work while crunching my data using the new version of MAXQDA (a CAQDAS application, also known as a Computer Assisted Qualitative Data Analysis Software) I just bought and installed for the purpose.
The revision due date is August 2; so time to again get cracking!
