A step-by-step guide to the qualitative research process that "can be understood by begin-ners . . . informative and interesting" (Choice). Qualitative Data is meant for the novice researcher who needs guidance on what specifically to do when faced with a sea of information. It takes readers through the qualitative research process, be-ginning with an examination of the basic philosophy of qualitative research, and ending with plan-ning and carrying out a qualitative research study. It provides an explicit, step-by-step procedure that will take the researcher from the raw text of interview data through data analysis and theory construction to the creation of a publishable work. The volume provides actual examples based on the authors’ own work, including two published pieces in the appendix, so that readers can follow examples for each step of the process, from the project’s inception to its finished product. It also includes an appendix explaining how to imple-ment these data analysis procedures using NVIVO, a qualitative data analysis program.
