Qualitative and quantitative study of police investigative thinking styles
Dean, Geoff, Fahsing, Ivar A., & Gottschalk, Petter (2007) Qualitative and quantitative study of police investigative thinking styles. International Journal of Knowledge and Learning, 3(1), pp. 76-87.
A qualitative study of detectives’ investigative thinking in Australia identified four thinking styles: method style, challenge style, skill style and risk style. Multiple item scales were developed for these four constructs in a survey instrument. A quantitative study based on the questionnaire was conducted among detectives in Norway. None of the multiple item scales achieved acceptable reliability. Factor analysis suggests a number of new thinking styles, including entrepreneur style and architect style.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
