Question
This question comes to me when my supervisors asked when what analytical technique you have applied for analyzing the qualitative data (interviews and FGDs). As coding is the process and not the technique. I answered with my knowledge (research papers) on the subject that grounded theory is a distinctive qualitative research approach that can be used as both methodology as well as the analysis technique. Since, the data is grounded and emerging categories continously evolve the theory grounded in the data as result of coding process.
Question
Hi, i am PhD student and i am half way done with data collection and analysis. I am employing Ground Theory Method (GTM) for my study. I have initially coded the data in NVivo and currently reviewing my initial codes to explore their relation with broader themes, which can further guide the research process for theory development. I have set of memos associated with each interview. What is the best way to connect the memos with initial codes and later on with focused codes? Like while writing the first draft of analysis, should i relate my memos and discuss them in light of emerging themes?
Need guidance on this!
Also, what is the best way to present data using NVivo 12? is it word query, mind maps or comparison frameworks?
Question
I am employing Grounded theory for my PhD study. My research design is based on 26 indepth semi-structured interviews. I have started the data collection, however i think i should do concurrent data collection and analysis. For this reason, i am planning to pause the data collection after achieving half no. Of interviews and then first analyze those for constructivist approach (GT) for theory building. Please share thoughts on this.
Question
Please anyone provide me authentic link to confirm European proceedings of social and behavioral sciences as ISI indexed proceedings (Web of Science)?
