The Gateway Process

Interviewing for Education and Social Science Research: The Gateway Approach,
Carolyn Lunsford Mears, Palgrave/Macmillan, 2009, page 71

Once the investigator has assembled a basic factual knowledge of the event ot situation being investigated, interviews can begin.

Depending on the purpose of the research, it is common for the gateway researcher to interview multiple individuals so that multiple narratives and therefore multiple perspectives can be share.

That's good to hear as I have conducted thirty or more interviews already ...

Gateway is not about finding the average of what has been experienced, but instead seeks to illuminate the diverse expression and responses to that situation.

"How was it for you?" can never be reduced to an average!
