The Qualitative Report, 4(1/2). http://www.nova.edu/ssss/QR/QR4-1/dye.html This paper illustrates the use of a kaleidoscope metaphor as a template for the organization and analysis of qualitative research data. It provides a brief overview of the constant comparison method, examining such processes as categorization, comparison, inductive analysis, and refinement of data bits and categories. Graphic representations of their metaphoric kaleidoscope are strategically interspersed throughout this paper. It is an interesting presentation of thoughts and use of the kaleidoscope as a metaphor.

  • Harris, J. (1997). Surviving ethnography: Coping with isolation, violence and anger. The Qualitative Report, 3(1). http://www.nova.edu/ssss/QR/QR3-1/harris.html This "article" concentrates upon the intensities of emotion experienced by a novice ethnographer. The argument is that acknowledging the emotional impact of events in the field enables the ethnographer to analyze reflexively the differences between the value of the self and those of the Other. Seeing beyond the emotions generated at times of crisis can permit and facilitate an analysis of the everyday social relations between participants. Dealing with the personal impact of these emotions is an entirely different matter; very few others (supervisors, academics, peers) although well-intentioned, will appreciate the depths of these emotions and the problems that they produce for an individual ethnographer. The argument is illustrated by reflexive field notes, experiences and poetry from the author's ethnographic study of British Deaf people.
  • Jones, K. (2004) “Mission Drift in Qualitative Research, or Moving toward a systematic review of qualitative studies, moving back to a more systematic narrative review”, The Qualitative Report, 9, 1, March 2004. Available at: http://www.nova.edu/ssss/QR/QR9-1/jones.pdf . The paper argues that the systematic review of qualitative research is best served by reliance upon qualitative methods themselves. A case is made for strengthening the narrative literature review and using narrative itself as a method of review. A technique is proposed that builds upon recent developments in qualitative systematic review by the use of a narrative inductive method of analysis.

  • Zeller, N. & Farmer, F. (1999)."Catchy, clever titles are not acceptable'': Style, APA, and qualitative reporting. International Journal for Qualitative Studies in Education, Volume 12, 1, January, 1999, pp. 3-19. Examines the epistemological implications of APA style, reminding readers that stylistic choices are always implicated in the decisions we make about how to know and understand our world. Article is a "call for qualitative researchers to develop their own style guidelines- ones more fitting to qualitative assumptions about knowledge, ones more reflective of the actual practices of qualitative researchers".

Retrieved January 30, 2008, from http://caqdas.soc.surrey.ac.uk/fieldingchoosing.pdf Based on the typology of qualitative analysis software (text retrievers, code-and-retrieve packages, and theory-builders) the author defined in the 1994, September issue of ESRC Data Archive Bulletin, he points out that it is possible to identify criteria to apply in deciding which type of package best suits one’s needs, either on a particular project or to meet the demands likely to arise over a period of several years. Packages vary substantially and in several key respects. Just as with research design in general, the guiding principle is to choose the right tool for the job. One also needs to know something about qualitative analysis before choosing a package. Another issue is whether one is engaged in team research or is working solo. These are important considerations but there are also user-related issues that should inform our choice of packages.
