“Would you like to continue doing qualitative research only? - this question, asked during many job interviews for faculty recruitment, reveals a deep rooted perception about the credibility of qualitative research. Skepticisms like this are stemmed from a number of claims made on the quality of qualitative research and qualitative researcher. The paper pursues most widely leveled allegations against qualitative research and its advocates, to examine the soundness of such allegations. Many of these allegations exist because of the lack of understanding of paradigmatic differences between qualitative and quantitative research, and due to dearth of competent qualitative researchers. The paper diagnoses the premises for such allegations and illustrates guidelines to address them.
