    Dye, J.F., Schatz, I.M., Rosenberg, B.A., & Coleman, S.T. (1998). Constant comparison method: A kaleidoscope of data. The Qualitative Report, 4(1/2). 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.

    Golafshani, N. (2003). Understanding reliability and validity in qualitative research. The Qualitative Report, 8, 597-607. Discusses the author's refinement of the positivist terms "reliability and validity" to be appropriate for qualitative research. He draws on many sources, including Patton, for his article.

    Harding, G., & Gantley, M. (1998). Qualitative methods: Beyond the cookbook. Family Practice, 15, 76-79. Discussion of qualitative health services research; distinction between problem-oriented and theory-oriented research; illustration of the benefit of introducing theoretical perspectives to develop the knowledge base of health services research (versus merely using a cookbook approach to methods selection).
    Harris, J. (1997). Surviving ethnography: Coping with isolation, violence and anger. The Qualitative Report, 3(1). 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: . 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.

These authors call for using strategies within one's research that will enable studies to have rigor built within them, versus having a post-application of criteria once the study is completed.

    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".
