The Second Edition of Johnny Saldaña's international bestseller provides an in-depth guide to the multiple approaches available for coding qualitative data.
Fully up to date, it includes new chapters, more coding techniques and an additional glossary. Clear, practical and authoritative, the book:
-describes how coding initiates qualitative data analysis
-demonstrates the writing of analytic memos
-discusses available analytic software
-suggests how best to use The Coding Manual for Qualitative Researchers for particular studies.
In total, 32 coding methods are profiled that can be applied to a range of research genres from grounded theory to phenomenology to narrative inquiry. For each approach, Saldaña discusses the method's origins, a description of the method, practical applications, and a clearly illustrated example with analytic follow-up.
A unique and invaluable reference for students, teachers, and practitioners of qualitative inquiry, this book is essential reading across the social sciences.
