This doctoral research project aims to study the collaborative practices of social scientists who use Grounded Theory Methodology (GTM). The main objective is to analyze how these researchers organize their collaboration within the analysis process of GTM. The study will first review the literature to understand the evolution of cooperation within GTM, which includes cooperative data collection, joint theorizing, and peer validation. A field study will then focus on social scientists at the University of Liège, including observations, interviews, and scenarios. This fieldwork will be enriched by including design sciences researchers from the Université de Technologie de Troyes. In the final phase of this research, the potential of artificial intelligence and data visualization in survey assistance, case clustering, and theorizing will be explored. To overcome the current limitations of CAQDAS software, a proposal for a collaboration tool aligned with GTM practices will be put forward. This research will contribute to a deeper understanding of researchers’ GTM collaboration practices and tools.
